Invention of the Day: 8-Bit Instant Photo Gameboy Gun

8bit-photogun-038bit-photogun-02 8bit-photogun-04

The fact that this is a gun is kinda stupid but I do think an 8-bit instant camera that prints out images like receipts is cool! Moscow-based media artist Dmitry Morozov built this gadget using an old game boy, arduino, a camera, and a thermal printer. Watch the video below.

    The thermal receipt printer was an accessory that Gameboy put out in the late 90s. it was compatible with the camera built into the Gameboy.

      Err! Wrong! The GameBoy Printer was an accessory that Nintendo put out in the late 90’s which was compatible with the GameBoy Camera cartridge which Nintendo also put out in the late 90’s.

      Basically what I am saying is that the GameBoy was made by Nintendo (not “Gameboy”) and the GameBoy Camera was *not* built in.

    • hmmm yea i didn’t realise that in the original article on his website it just said gb which i didn’t realise stood for gameboy. essentially all the aspects of this that i was excited about already existed without the gun
