Nintendo's Game Boy is the instrument of choice for some musicians, due to its charming chiptune sound and the prominence Little Sound Dj. But artist Sebastian Bender has taken a different approach to using the 8-bit handheld as musical maker.

Listen as Bender flicks, taps, scratches and drums the body of the Game Boy to impressive musical effect, expertly bringing da funk while also using the game machine's headphone port and battery connectors for sweet soothing tones. Awesome.

If this is the kind of Game Boy music you want to hear more of, grab the MP3 from Bender's YouTube page.
