Gameboy calculator!

Post by alentris » Tue Dec 15, 2009 9:05 pm

This is an original mod of mine, no tutorials used. 13 hours of work total, including R&D, Soldering, and assembly. I've been using it for about a week and I still haven't gotten caught :D . So here ya go, enjoy.

If you want pics of the build process, pm me. Brownie points if you can guess how many sticks of hot glue I used.

(p.s. this was a flip video recording, it sucks.)

Make a paper border for the lens, so it looks a little more legit.

Other than that, perfect!
