Game Boy Color mod reads ROMs from floppies
There's a lot of easy ways to play Game Boy ROMs, if you're so inclined. You can play them on an emulator: nearly every platform under the sun has a perfectly capable Game Boy emulator available for it. I have Game Boy emulators installed on my laptop, PSP, Nintendo DS, GameBoy Advance and cellular phone. Of all my gadgetry, only my watch stubbornly refuses to play Link's Awakening
, but oh... give it time.
So you could
do that. Or you could just carve up your own circuit board then hack, splice and solder a floppy drive to your old-school Game Boy Color, allowing it to read ROMs directly from a 3.5" disk. You know. Whatever's easiest.
Even better? The French modder who dreamed this up touts "portability" as a bullet point.
Sheer, stubborn, wild-eyed hacker insanity... awesome to behold, worthy of our incredulous applause.
A floppy drive for your Game Boy!
