Can a GBZ be fashioned into this?

Post by CleanFF » Thu May 16, 2019 1:47 am

So I was in Walmart and saw this: https://www.walmart.com/ip/dreamGEAR-My ... 4/50624073.

I picked it up thinking it may have a couple fun games on it. Well the games weren’t good. So I took it apart to check things out. I thought it’d be great if there was some way to pop a Raspberry Pi Zero in there and make it a cheap GBZ.

I was wondering if anyone with some expertise would think this was at all possible. Or if it could be modified slightly to work with a Pi Zero. I took some pictures if anyone is interested.

Let me know if this is an interesting or possible idea, or if it’s absolutely terrible; because I would like to know.

I’m by no means an expert, but you might be able to use the bottom half of the board in a game boy zero. I’m not sure about the screen. You’d probably be better off using an all in one board meant for a gbz.

Edit: spelling
