A hobbyist has mounted a Raspberry Pi Zero in the case of a Nintendo Gameboy and a USB port and Bluetooth support added. Gameboy running an emulator and can be equipped with games through micro SD cards in traditional cartridges.

Hobbyist Wermy milled two extra holes in his Gameboy enclosure to add two original NES buttons to the existing buttons. On the side he put a USB port for connecting any keyboard or mouse, and on the other side is micro USB for charging and mini-HDMI to display image on an external screen.

A residual USB port in the enclosure he placed a bluetooth dongle. In an original game cartridge he placed a memory card reader so that he could add games via micro SD cards. The reader was connected to a pair of pins on the cartridge and Wermy made sure the correct pins on the sd card pins on the Raspberry Pi Zero affiliated to the cartridge holder of the Gameboy. The mud runs RetroPie on the system to be able to run the game collections of several retro consoles on the Gameboy.
