Some folks like to play classic console games by using emulators on smartphones, tablets, or handheld game systems with modern hardware.

And then there’s the community of Nintendo Wii hackers who literally cut Nintendo’s 2006 game console down to size and stuff the components inside of custom cases.

We’ve seen projects that put a Wii into a Game Boy Advance SP-style case, an Altoids tin, and a custom handheld case. Now the same person who brought us that last one is back with the Wiiboy Color — a Nintendo Wii stuffed inside a case designed to look like the classic Game Boy Color.

  1. Wii 2012? Wrong decade and console. The Wii was released in 2006. You mixed up the Wii U release date.

  2. TuneIn should be the subject of a class
    action lawsuit. It’s signed people up initially
    offering access via Amazon smart speakers, then removed
    the feature a couple of months into a subscription.
    Now it’s removing yet another feature.

  3. @Grant Russell, and what’s wrong with using the S7 in 2020? The top rated comment under this video called it the “forever phone” (more precisely the Edge variant):

    Maybe put in a new battery and install a lightweight custom ROM on it, there are a few choices, the S7 is popular in the custom ROM community. Yeah, USB-C and Bluetooth 5 would be nice but you can’t have everything. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  4. I agree, it’s a shame that smartphones typically only come in one size now.

    I’d really like a 5″ phone with a 16:9 ratio screen. To be honest, I’d really like Samsung to re-use the Galaxy S7 body and put new internals in it. That was the perfect smartphone in my opinion.

  5. The OnePlus Clover. It’s a Realme C15. Too bad they forgot about 1080p displays in smartphones. I guess we have to wait for microLED display technology to arrive for their return. Too bad these days they almost exclusively make smartphones in almost one identical size only.
