The GameBoy Calculator: Fooling teachers of all subjects since 2009.

Math is far and wide my least favored subject. But we’ve gone over that before many, many times. So instead of complaining about my number crunching hatred, I’ll share with you one way to ignore it altogether, fooling your teachers and pleasing your soul.

The GameBoy Calculator is one of those inventions we all wished for as school children. School is rarely “fun” in the purest sense of the word. Making our days go quicker by filling them with some super cool retro gaming would certainly give the daily grind a much needed kick in the pants, wouldn’t you say? Skilled tinkerer Alentris did just that.

He took your standard TI-83 (TI really needs to upgrade these things) graphing calculator and crammed a fully functioning GameBoy inside. Cool is an understatement. You may notice some rough edges and what not, but lets be real, this is a calculator/GameBoy meant to pass some time — not some Apple inspired gadget of beauty.

The only problem that crops up is when Alentris does actually need to use a calculator. Such issues can be remedied with simple adjustments in the design however. When making the next iteration, remove the GameBoy and replace it with an iPod Touch. Games. Tools. Internet. Problem solved.
