Check Out This Device That Turns Your Phone Into A Game Boy

After an April Fools' day prank where thousands were duped into believing that a device to turn your phone into a Game Boy was being released - it's now become a reality.

So many people responded enthusiastically, that the company behind it realised they'd found a gap in the market.

The company, Hyperkin, have since developed the product and at this year's E3, they unveiled the Smart Boy.

And lads, it's due to hit the shelves in December. Christmas is going to be lit.

The basic premise is that the device can be attached to your smart phone. It is then transformed into a perfectly working Game Boy - you can even pop game cartidges into a slot and yes, they'll work.

Many had believed that initially it would only be available on iPhone, but as you can see from these pictures, a Samsung phone was used in the demonstration. According to Neowin, Hyperkin have said that the device will arrive for Android smartphones.
