But it’s not exactly easy

Perhaps one of the most impressive accessories Nintendo has ever released is the Game Boy Camera. Back when it arrived on the scene in 1998, camera phones weren’t even a thing yet – so to have something like this (especially if you were a bit younger at the time), was pretty neat.
Its legacy lives on via the company’s portable line, which eventually incorporated cameras featuring their own mini-games. And just a few weeks ago, we saw how a Game Boy Camera was being used to take some Awesome Retro Canvas Imagery. Now, Twitter user @bernardcapulong has turned his Game Boy Camera into a fully-functioning webcam.
As can be seen in the video above, Bernard is connected to a Zoom call and is recording the footage off a Game Boy Camera slotted into a Super Game Boy 2 cartridge inside a Super Nintendo. It’s linked to a bunch of other extra attachments that are “expensive” and he admits it’s not exactly a “practical” way to participate in online meetings.
What do you think? Impressed as we are? Leave a comment down below.
