Guy Builds Himself A Functional Game Boy Electric Guitar

September 21, 2015


This is the Game Boy electric guitar that BitFixGaming admin FIbbef built himself. That way he has something to do while the rest of the band is arguing over who gets to wear the leather pants at the next concert, and who has to wear denim. Me? The only kind of pant I wear to rock concerts are pantIES (I am a groupie).

It basically looks like an oversized Gameboy with a guitar neck, and it's surprisingly functional. The buttons on the device all work to control your games, and the A/B buttons even double as volume and tone dials.

The Game Boy emulator is powered by a Raspberry Pi and a 2,200 mAh battery, which outputs to a 5-inch screen under the neck.

Pretty cool. I wonder if he ever gets called out for playing Pokemon at brand practice. Have I ever told you I used to be in a band? I had to leave due to creative differences. Well technically the manager at Chuck E. Cheese kicked me out for getting on stage and trying to play the animatronic dog's guitar, but I feel like creative differences is a nicer way to put it. I still have a bunch of prize tickets left which I'll give you if you promise to also get me a Chinese finger trap.

Hit the jump for a video of Fibbef jamming out.

Thanks to ThePoopster, who is number one at number two.
