Hardware developer Hyperkin, the folks behind the Retron 5 gaming console, are making a new peripheral that will turn your iPhone 6 Plus into a Game Boy Color.
Dubbed the Smart Boy, Hyperkin's upcoming peripheral to play Game Boy and Game Boy Color games was originally announced on its Facebook page as an April Fools' Day joke. But secretly, it was testing the demand for such a system and fan fervour was so high that the very next day Hyperkin announced that it would actually get cracking on developing this."A lot of you were speculating that the Smart Boy is an April Fools' Joke.

"Thank you all for your enthusiastic responses!
