Gamer and technology enthusiast Otto Climan decided to transform a Game Boy Color into a fully-functional Apple TV remote while still retaining its cartridge playing capabilities. First, he took an original Game Boy Color, upgraded the LCD, and then contacted Retro Modding for a custom white case, buttons, as well as a cartridge. Why is the cartridge significant? It contains all of the hardware necessary for the Apple TV remote. Read more for a video and additional information.
Since the Apple TV supports both Bluetooth and IR, the cartridge is necessary to implement this connectivity. That’s not all, Otto managed to get the D-pad and buttons working with Apple TV too, so that’s definitely a first. Unfortunately, there are no plans on selling this mod as Apple and Nintendo would most likely take the project down just as quickly as it went up.
