t may be almost 24 years old, but that doesn't mean the Game Boy Camera can't evolve ??“ thanks to some hacking from a persistent YouTuber, the Game Boy accessory has been shown to work with Canon DSLR lenses (albeit with a few understandable trade-offs).

The creation made by YouTuber Conorsev might not replace your Google Pixel 6 Pro ??“ the Game Boy Camera is, after all, a grayscale-only affair with a 0.1MP resolution. But if you're looking for a more challenging photography project than the usual bokeh ball experiments, it could be a fun one to tackle.

The project has to overcome two big challenges. Firstly, there was the hurdle of importing the Game Boy Camera's photos from the handheld console itself. The camera, which plugs into the Game Boy's cartridge slot, is designed to only send its image data to the Game Boy Printer (smart thinking, Nintendo).
