What started out as an April Fools’ joke, turned into something legit! (In-N-Out Burger, anyone?)
This iPhone case can turn your iPhone 6 Plus into a Game Boy!
According to a report by The Verge, while it did start out as a joke, overwhelming positive response prompted them to make things for real!
A concept art was posted on Hyperkin’s Facebook page on March 31, called Smart Boy, which is a piece of hardware that will clip onto an iPhone 6, and eventually other smart phones, where you can also play Game Boy and Game Boy Color cartridges. Not surprisingly, everyone thought it was an April Fool’s joke!
Until Hyperkin posted a second update, according to The Verge:
“A lot of you were speculating that the Smart Boy is an April Fools’ Joke. Well, it sort of was. We “leaked” it with the initial intent of testing the market, seeing whether or not it should be something we’d actually make, under the guise of an April Fools’ Joke.”
Talk about testing the waters!!
No release date has been announced yet, but it’s definitely in development!
What do you think of this? Anyone remember the Game Boy?
