Nintendo Should Follow Up the SNES Classic with this Tiny GameBoy

This is a great idea for the third Nintendo retro console.

What comes after the SNES Classic? Vincent Buso has an idea. He build what is likely the world's smallest GameBoy. The keychain-sized tiny console is an open source project. You can build one yourself if you have the skills to follow Buso's instructions.

The so-called Keymu measures 42x46x17mm, small enough to be attached to your keychain while being fully playable. It is based on the Intel Edison and runs emulators for NES, SNES or GBA games. the creator provides the code, BOM, PCB and mechanical design complete with tutorials so that anyone can build one. Nintendo should definitely consider to make a tiny new GameBoy with color display that runs popular GameBoy games.

The Keymu details are available on Hackaday. Via BoingBoing.

The sale of SNES Classic has not started yet in the US. Europeans and Australians have been able to pre-order the SNES Classic, but no store in the US has offered a SNES Classic pre-sale yet. If there will be a SNES Classic pre-order option in the US, it will be selling out in a flash. This is why it makes sense to also keep an eye out on pre-order options outside of the US. To get started with hunting a SNES Classic, browse the list of stores listing the SNES Classic Edition in the US and also the world-wide SNES Classic store list.
