Xreart Framed Nintendo Game Boy Original

Published By

In our current age of handheld supercomputers for everyone from children to adults, it’s easy to forget just how much of a quantum technological leap the original Game Boy was. Originally released in 1989, it set a new precedent for game systems—and thanks to its long battery life and deep selection of exceptionally fun games, the original Game Boy sold its first one million units in the United States in just a few weeks.

Xreart’s treatment of the Nintendo Game Boy Original is just as much of an artistic statement as the handheld console was in its own day. Deconstructed and framed under glass, it labels the beguilingly simple components that add up to the cultural icon that is the Game Boy. Overall, it’s a perfect gift for anyone with an appetite for 90’s-era nostalgia.
