The Game Boy Returns


You're not a complete, functioning human being if a part of you doesn't miss the Game Boy. Resigned to the rubbish bin of our youth, the hand-held gaming device deserves some serious respect for bringing Tetris into our empty lives.

We all need to give a hefty slap on the back then to design company Incipio who have created the really quite brilliant iPhone cover that resembles the Game Boy.

Unveiled at CES 2011, the case features a nearly identical design that turns the back of your iPhone into an immediate time machine. It's hugely bitter-sweet news though we're afraid.

Due to the obvious legal issues, the case has been created as a one-off. It was merely created to show what they could do. We're fully convinced.

You can see more of their radical case designs here.
