The NeoGB Printer: a Game Boy Printer emulator that converts GB photos to digital formats

The NeoGB Printer

Instead of printing your Game Boy Camera shots, what if you could store them as digital image files on any device? The NeoGB Printer does just that. The project team, comprised of Raphaël Boichot, Rafael Zenaro, and Brian Khuu worked together to create the device using an ESP32 development board and GPLv3 firmware to emulate the Game Boy Printer. You just plug the NeoGB Printer into your Game Boy and try it with one of the 110 titles that support the original Printer and get ready to send your images through.

The NeoGB Printer uses SD cards to store the software and you will need to work with putting the hardware together but the team says it requires “little to no soldering skill and is very easy to flash”.

Find out more about the NeoGB Printer on their GitHub page including hardware and software setup, how to use it, and all the compatible games including Pokémon Gold/Silver/Crystal and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX.
