The device in question

Remember Jeremy Parish? He's the guy behind Game Boy World and the boss at US Gamer. He's also the kind of guy who thinks nothing of taking ageing retro tech to the world's biggest gaming event and snapping photos of famous video game celebrities.

Parish snapped the likes of Nintendo's Bill Trinen and Kensuke Tanabe, Image & Form's Brjann Sigurgeirsson, ex-Castlevania producer Koji "IGA" Igarashi and Senran Kagura creator Kenichiro Takaki. His retro-photography wasn't just some random pastime, however - he was inspired to dig out the 1998 peripheral because of the work of Alexander Bahr, who has created a device which allows you to store Game Boy Camera photos on an SD card.

You see, back when the Game Boy Camera was all new and exciting, there was no way of saving those images for posterity - aside from a MadCatz link cable which connects to a PC parallel port - hardly an ideal solution these days. Bahr's prototype device allows you to download the images from the camera and can store up to 1,300 images on a 1GB SD card.

The device is still some way away from being commercially available, but Bahr is hopeful that one day, we'll be able to order one of these wonder-machines and store all those grainy, monochrome snaps forever.
