Top Toy: Turn Your iPad 2 into a Game Boy

By |

A new iPad 2 case promises to disguise your tablet PC as a giant Game Boy, complete with a monochrome, pixilated Apple logo and the classic handheld’s directional pad, buttons and chunky beige aesthetic.

Designed by Lootiful, creators of the iPWN! Hardshell Game Boy case for the iPhone 3G/3GS and iPhone 4, the slim encasement is designed to give mobile devices a shot of retro 8-bit style. In addition to protecting your investment, it will presumably also act as a beacon to other nerds that it’s safe to randomly approach you and begin discussing Super Mario Land and The Final Fantasy Legend.  

Available for preorder soon, owners can presumably simply pair the accessory with a software emulator to enjoy an instant one-way trip back to their wayward adolescence.
