Incredible Custom Built Nintendo Virtual Boy Arcade Machine

Custom-Built-Nintendo-Virtual-Boy-Arcade-MachineDespite hosting one of the smallest games libraries around, one dedicated gamer recently decided to make the most of his spare Nintendo Virtual Boy. With the aim to add another arcade cabinet to his games room, the spare unit was somehow converted into a full dedicated retro 3D arcade machine.

With the Sega Mega Drive getting the arcade treatment via the Sega Mega-Tech, the Nintendo NES arriving via the Playchoice-10 and off all the consoles and handhelds remaining, the Nintendo Virtual Boy was the one we least expected to be modified to offer the arcade experience at home.

The newly sculpted arcade machine by Tighe Lory is a thing of beauty, something even the creator of the Virtual Boy; Gunpei Yokoi would be proud of. Featuring reconfigured control sticks, adjustable height head unit and decals to die for, the Virtual Boy arcade machine is one well thought out piece of kit we would love to try out.
