User turns old Game Boy into GamePad for Android

Ah, I miss you! Nostalgia has interesting ways to move us, to make us move on, finally, to search for what we need. It seems that the longing aroused the creativity of Instructables member Alpinedelta, and drew attention to a console that would not surprise us these days: the Game Boy.

This GamePad is one of the creative options for reusing technology that has been set aside. What about?

Aiming to play famous Nintendo titles on their Galaxy Nexus, but offering the experience of playing on Nintendo hardware, Chad Boughton (Alpinedelta) mixed a Wii Remote as a bluetooth interface and a Dot Matrix Gameboy, giving the new function. from the Gamepad to the 90s.

The result, as can be seen in the video below, is great. In it, Chad warns that tested with the SNES emulator, but in theory should work with others as well as on different Android devices.
