Bastiaan Ekeler is the founder of Ekeler Design, and to date his professional work has been with equipment well beyond the capabilities of the Game Boy Camera. But inspired by Tim Binnion, who recently shot an F1 race on the Nintendo camera, Ekeler wanted to “get some serious glass involved”.
The hinges on old Nintendo DS handhelds were notoriously weak and would often give way, but where most would bee a broken console, modder Joe Bleeps sees an opportunity to salvage the hardware and create something new: the Neon Advance.
F1 fan Tim Binnion got to go to the Shanghai Grand Prix last month, and like most people lucky enough to see a race in person, he took a ton of photos. Thing is, amidst a sea of SLRs and iPhones, he took them on a Game Boy camera.

Grant Haack, who goes by Snip3r95 on Imgur, found an old Pokémon cartridge while wandering around a flea market. The game only set them back $5, but actually getting the Game Boy classic up and running required some serious elbow grease.
