Sure, the Nintendo Game Boy may be the third best-selling game console of all time, but sometimes, you just want a bigger version of it, and that’s where Game Man comes in. This isn’t an officially licensed Nintendo product, but rather a homemade creation that features a 3D-printed case, a 5.6-inch (640 x 480) display, audio video output and a Famicom motherboard. However, if you want to play more than just Nintendo games, there’s room for a Raspberry Pi computer in the case too.
Despite its size, you can also use smaller 3D printers to make this using a special “splitup” file set. Unfortunately, none of the original Game Boy accessories work on the Game Man, including Game Genie, Super Game Boy, Handy Boy, Flip Light, and camera / printer. If you’re technically inclined, all of the 3D printer file have been provided free of charge. More information here.
