    Yeah, this thought just occurred to me, I doubt this would ever happen even if it is possible. But I'm curious all the same, in theory, could a GBC emulator built for the Wii U (not vWii) recognize the camera in the Wii U's gamepad as the Game Boy Camera's camera in the event you load that rom? It'd be really neat to take those classic pixelly photos again but with the Wii U Game Pad.

    Well, yeah the Gamepad has a camera, so in theory a future emulator would be able to use the camera, heck, we could also get a camera app... the thing is finding someone who is able and has the will to spend their time in that kind of project.

    Someone tried to Port mGBA to WiiU (a gb/gbc/gba emulator for 3ds, PS Vita and android that have emulated camera for the game boy camera rom) but with no success for now.

    Sure, it's possible, but apart from just being a wiiu after all, I'm not even sure if the usual homebrew libraries have camera support at all

    They already did this on the 3DS, so it's most likely doable on the Wii U

    The thing is, is there anybody interested in doing so? probably not.
