You may have read about the Hyperkin Smart Boy when it was unveiled earlier this year, given that it's a relatively insane idea that has somehow become a real thing. Essentially, this is a little cradle for your smart phone that will not only give you physical buttons themed after the original Game Boy but will, in fact, also let you play actual Game Boy and Game Boy Colour cartridges on your phone via an emulator. It's really weird and kind of fantastic and it's available to pre-order now at Play-Asia, if you like.

If you're the kind of person who would proudly display a mini version of your favourite pop culture character, you're going to want to see what Figma are on offer over at Play-Asia currently.
