Hyperkin teased the Smart Boy accessory as an April Fool's gag last year, but the overwhelming reaction to the concept has led the company to come up with an actual product. Hyperkin is now taking pre-orders for the Smart Boy Development Kit, a $60 accessory that lets you play Game Boy and Game Boy Color cartridges directly from your Android phone.

Hyperkin Smart Boy

Here's what's on offer with the Smart Boy Development Kit:

  • Open source serial app and firmware
  • Compatible with GB and GBC cartridges
  • Classic handheld-style tactile button set
  • Designed for Android smartphones
  • Double-sided micro USB port

Hyperkin showed off an alpha build of the Smart Boy at E3 with all the Game Boy buttons and a slot at the bottom for game cartridges.

Interested? You can pre-order the Smart Boy Development Kit from the link below, but you'll have to wait until December 1 to receive your unit. What do you guys think of the accessory?
