    Back with kitty Zelda forever :D

    So, I just saw that on a french website
    In short, it's a gameboy advance sp with the size for a keychain and, the most beautiful in there, its playable.
    it works with an emulator and Intel Edison chip
    here are the specs :
    dual core cpu 500mhz
    1gb of ram
    4gb of hdd flash
    works with usb, wifi and bluetooth

    The one who made it, Vincent Buso, doesn't plan to sell it, but will later show how to make your own

    Why would you spend money on a thing that purposely made to be horrible?
    Useless invention.

    It's a novelty idea without much practical use. I'll pass.

    I love it. I could play it on trains, the bus, doctor's office... anywhere I have to wait. It's small and cute. A bit rough-looking, but that can be fixed with a file and sand paper.

    I'd honestly rather a 3DS XL sized GBA player with all the capabilities of a GBA SP, including wired and wireless link cable support, GC link support, the whole 9 yards. I recently checked on my 2 SPs, and holy shit they just get smaller and smaller. I can't believe at one point in my life I marveled at their screen sizes, did the same for DS and now those are way too small in that department (DS-lite is smaller yes, but the screens are of similar size as DS fat, or larger). I want to play the Gen 3 Pokemon games and may resort to 3DS VC injection, I cannot handle the SP, or even DS-lite.

    Is it me or do you need toothpicks to press the start button? :unsure:

    EDIT: still... I can't deny it's a sweet gadget thingy. Congrats to the maker.

    seems extremely uncomfortable to control, and you need a magnifying glass to see the screen properly.
    if I had the tech, I'd rather do a ~3DS-sized one with a 720p screen and some filters.

    He's completely right. That isn't playable whatsoever. It's just a "look how nerdy i am" accesory.

    I just did.
    Hit me with your best shot!

    Just the idea of it.
    Waste of monetary resources.

    I get the3 attraction of a Miniaturized GBA SP, but frankly you're better off hunting down a used GBM (a worn one you don't worry about scratching). It's fun to play Minish Cap while waiting in lines, for example.
