There’s something magical and nostalgic about extremely low resolution in this era of mega-megapixels on every cell phone. And the Game Boy’s big bulbous camera module just looks so cool. Robson Couto didn’t stop at simply using the camera — that’s been done before — but actually reversed the card’s protocol so that he could leave it entirely intact. As you can see from the banner image, it was a success.
Robson could read one bank of memory, but not any of the others. It turns out that the camera pack uses a clock signal that not many other cards use. It took Robson some serious work — a lot of it false starts and dead ends — to get this particular part working.
