The GameBoy Makes Beautiful Music Even When Switched Off

Posted by James Newton

There's nothing it can't do

Forget about actually having the GameBoy turned on to make music; the video below proves that its components can sing in their own right.

While we've seen countless Nintendo beatboxers, it's far less common to see the machine itself take centre stage, but that's precisely what's happened here. YouTube user MrSeberi has turned the humble GameBoy into a musical instrument, using everything from the battery connectors to the audio port to create a surprisingly catchy tune.

The next logical evolution is someone recreating Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 with a Power Glove.

Aww yeah, when the cartridge pile sound kicked in I just had a wave of memories wash over me.

Tossing a Game Boy cartridge into a pile is such a great sound.

I watched this earlier. Awesome, haha. My favorite was when he put the charger up to the port and made a buzz sound :D

Wow, that was really cool. I have not seen anything that creative in a very long time. It makes me think what he can do with other kinds of gaming consoles and systems.

This is very Matmos-esque. Except using a Game Boy instead of recordings of laser eye surgery.

Lol: People with to much time on their hands!

By the way: Don't you guys agree that this is handheld abuse? Pinching the screen, scratching the side etc.

@Aiko How right you are! Won't make that mistake again. I blame my strict anti-Nintendo upbringing (whoops)...
