    *i've set images as spoilers because images was too big, sorry.


    You have a Virtual Boy, Cool! you have one of the rarest consoles of Nintendo! that's very cool! but... you don't have AC Adapter set... one like this:

    AC Adapter Set VB

    Okay! No problem! you can still mod your controller to power on your Virtual Boy without soldering!
    *It's recommended to solder Virtual Boy controller + and - if you don't want AC Adapter set.
    *This mod is very easy!


    Just you need a cheap SNES AC adapter! I brought this:
    AC adapter
    -----------------------------------
    My AC info:
    Input: 100-240V 50/60Hz
    0.3MAX
    Output: 12V - 700mA

    -----------------------------------
    Okay, cut it, and search + and - in your AC Adapter, like mine:
    + and -

    *If you don't know how to find + and - in your AC adapter, you should open it, and in motherboard should say, or use any tool to find + and -, like leds.

    Next, in your controller, put the cables in the pins, Left is Negative, Right is Positive, like this:
    + and - in VB Controller

    Excelent! now try to turn on your Virtual Boy, if works, congrats! you don't need anymore AC Adapter Set! (unless if you don't want AC Adapter Set, you should solder the VB Controller pins)

    Also, you should put something, like scotch tape, something like this:
    wut

    Anyway, here is my cutie virtual boy working with this mod ^^/ :
    cutie Virtual Boy ^^

    And no, this can't damage you virtual boy unless you put + and - reverse, so be careful!

    I hope this can be useful for anyone who have a Virtual Boy without AC adapter set ^^/

    *also sorry for the shitty english i have lmao


    Something random like hopes about me with this console kek

    Mod idea: Replace the internals of the Virtual Boy with that of a modern VR headset...
    Actually, I think I might try that at some point...

    I don't think that would be possible...
    First, the Motherboard is too big...
    Second, no focus and no IRD focus too...
    Would be a nice idea, but sounds like impossible unless the VR has too much space for the Virtual Boy Motherboard.
    Also, the VB needs a special lents, (No LCD) So i don't know if that would be possible, possibly maybe TM
    I want to do a lot of mods with that console! Like:
    VB controller to USB
    VB screen to TV with easy installation
    VB Rechargable Battery would not be a bad idea too...
    Re-painting the Virtual Boy, i would love it to have one green with black!
    And much more! But... schools sucks, and i have a lot of homework :'( also sometimes i don't havs enough time to play or draw ;w;
    Anyway, soon TM
