The Tiger Boy Advance

Now you’re playing with… Tiger?

Nintendo

There’s no end to things you can do with Nintendo handhelds as Chris Downing showed when he merged a Tiger Electronics handheld with a Game Boy Advance to create a Tiger Boy Advance. But it didn’t come without its drawbacks:

So I’m not going to get into much detail here about the build because the video above does most of the explaining, but for what looked like was going to be kind of a simple project, turned into a nightmare on on a very basic level. But what was even better than that was the fact that said video took more time to make than the damn project itself!

But I guess that’s where I’ve been going lately as I’ve really been trying to increase the content quality of my videos for the past couple of years now. Problem is, the amount of time they take to make is mind-numbing, especially when considering how little time I really have with this still being a “hobby”.

But it’s so worth it when when you can look back and say, “I made all of this!”, even if that means there’s only one or two projects/videos a year.

Fundamentally, the Tiger Boy Advance is a GBA inside a 3D-printed Tiger handheld replica but with modernised extras. Stream the video above to find out more.
