The Game Boy Smartwatch

Watch out: you could be playing Super Mario at the drop of a wrist before long.

The terrifyingly capable 16-year-old web developer Corbin Davenport has managed to hack an Android smartwatch - specifically a Samsung Gear Live - to run a tiny Game Boy VBC emulator. He'd already managed to get Windows 95 to run on one (which is just as impressive, if much less fun, Minesweeper aside) and now he's found a real use for a smartwatch, to silence all those naysayers.

As a caveat, it does require a Bluetooth gamepad to actually play the likes of Tetris and Super Mario Bros, but it's hugely impressive nonetheless.

Watch and admire below.
