This keychain-size Game Boy plays more games than the SNES Classic

The thirst for anything Nintendois too real.

The company can’t keep the Switch in stock and people are hyped AF for the SNES Classic dropping in September.

But what’s better than both of those consoles? A flippin’ keychain-sized Game Boy Advance. Nintendo’s not officially “retro-ing” the GBA (yet). But who needs to wait when you can make your own mini version of the greatest handheld ever created?

YouTuber Vincent Buso did just that using Intel’s tiny Edison “computer-on-module” designed for wearables and Internet of Things devices. Buso’s DIY project is modeled after the Game Boy Advance SP with a 3D-printed hinge, and plays emulated NES, SNES, GB, GBC, and GBA games.

Sure, your eyes will probably hurt squinting at its 1.5-inch OLED screen and your fingers will cramp up pecking at its teeny, tiny buttons, but hot damn, it works. And there’s even a built-in speaker! Dayummm.
