That'd be so awesome to have one of those xD. It's not practical, but it's pretty cool, lol.

I know that . I'm just saying it's a pretty neat thing. Didn't say it was revolutionary or anything =\.

it looks fake because that is the original gameboy from 1989 which has only a gray scale screen yet we see color in the picture

The screen is taken out. You have to hook it up to an external monitor to see what you're doing still. The color you're seeing, are the components on the mobo. Did you read the article even, mikee? lol

it's somewhat cool, however i find it dissapointing. it's an incomplete mod that probably wasn't that difficult. open the gameboy. gut it. mount the board.
