The Intricate Steampunk Game Boy

gameboy1.png

This isn't a wind up. It's steam-powered.

Well, not quite.

This fully-functional Game Boy is the steampunk creation of French set and prop designer Elise Siegwald.

Using nothing more than a spool of thread, acrylic paint and the mechanical innards of a broken clock, Siegwald has transformed a classic Game Boy Colour into a fantastical handheld games console. While it can still play games, the screen looks a little distorted through its new bubble lens - and we doubt the A and B buttons will be all that comfortable to handle. 

You can see more of Siegwald's work on her Behance page. Now, who's for a game of Super Steam Brothers?
