    Doesn't it lose its adhesion though?

    I'm tempted to get one of them myself.
    They looks pretty nice.

    Doesn't matter. The case itself is a tight fit so it'll be held in place regardless.

    @Chary you misspelled "renown" in the post :P

    Otherwise, this actually looks pretty cool. Just bought the gameshell though so I don't exactly have the money to waste... :unsure:

    My mistake.
    I was lead to relieve that it didn't do color because I didn't read carefully enough and the front page image shows a monochrome screen.
    But if the final unit has a color screen, mono games ain't gonna look pretty. The gameboy screen has a unique look that cannot be replicated with any color screen.

    where the potential goes to zero
    Is this for real? Only one picture? Perhaps they've not really made anything yet and just used a picture of a backlit GB Pocket. The screen looks about as good as a real GB Pocket after you stuff a ~ $10 backlight panel in it.
    As for shoehorning a lithium battery in there....not worth it. My backlit GB Pocket lasts long enough on NiMH and it's easy enough to swap them out.

    If it works with Everdrive GB/X{3,5,7} it might be worth considering if it were $50.

    so, this is just emulated through use of those on-a-chip things, rather than getting close to hardware as possible. Anyone know of anything like this that actually tries to get hardware close?

    i'd imagine it'll be possible to solder on a microsd slot for this thing, but i'd rather just find an out-of-box device i'd like.
