If you do a upgraded version, try to implement a 50hz Scart RGB mode. VB is 50Hz and all PAL TVs are. The official Video Boy was also only in PAL. (Can 50Hz work with VGA too?)
That "native" mode should avoid most side effects the 60Hz conversation has.
Also while I can solder myself, I do not really like it.
The solder pads for the RGB/VGA cable on the VirtualTap were quite small. Maybe you can make them a little bigger. :)

Optional:
- maybe it should be possible to choose any color for the picture
- board with input for both screens and two VGA outputs to connect for example 2 projectors in order to get a 3D picture.

Optional crazy:
Take a new 3DS XL screen and hook the VB up to it :D

BTW, does somebody here is able to burn one of this small chips
for me, so that I can disconnect the mirror unit from the board?

Propably a half size mockup.
To show an idea this would be enough.

That Easter Egg is maybe a way for Nintendo to eiter tease possible VB content in the future or they want to check and see how much interest it creates for the VB. I am sure many people have not even seen a Virtual Boy or know the name.

There was always some tiny VB stuff in some games like Smash Bros or Animal Crossing. But that were only statues or items for your decoration. Wario Ware had some VB inspired stuff but that Video above is the first time that Nintendo is really demonstrating the System in 3D. I think that is a big step, because so far Nintendo tried to avoid bigger VB content. I have hope to see some official VB emulation at one point.
Afterall, emulation have become a quite easy and cheap way to make older games run and Nintendo had great success with the NES and SNES Mini.

Good work as usual but I have to say Bye Bye 3DS VB Emulator.
Reading the last post this will never happen anymore.
Shame.

And you entirely missing the point. There is and was interest in the Emulator but as I said from the beginning, the people today do not care so much about the next PC emulator or debugger. That is only us here who care about such stuff mostly. And if people care for emulators they want it to work with stuff like retroarch as libretro compatible emulator.

The Patreon page was not going too bad for a while but now it is almost to zero after such a long time of nothing. And if somebody would have listen to me from the beginning, patreon would still go strong. But without any 3DS stuff it is no wonder that is not working.

Sorry, I am very disappointed!

So okay, who is next in line for doing finally the right thing???

The person who baught that Debugger and Video boy on yahoo is basicially now in posession of a Space World Prototype Head Unit. Check the pictures. One of the two head units is dark indigo and the eye shade is also prototype material. The Speaker also miss the rubber.
Remarkeble is the very low price considering whats on the table.

A loose copy would be enough for me.
I never liked the US BOX design for the Virtual boy and Games anyway. It is beyond me why all the homebrew is always using this ugly US design :D
If I get a copy, I will make my own japanese style box for it.

I was about to write the same.
It is probably a cheap plastic headset in a VB design were you have to put your phone in. When it comes to resolution all the HDphones should be enough to display both eyes without scaling and have 3D
I think they also need to deliver a fitting controller.
There should be also a app containing emulation.
I bet they used code of existing emulators.

Having a proper emulator on the 3DS would be still a much cooler solution.

@furrtek
do you consider also a scart PAL version?

I ask because in this very case PAL 50Hz would make sense.
The VB also works with 50 Hz so we could display it native.

The funny thing is, in 2005 or so, I always wondered why the official Nintendo Video Boy and I also think the other DevBoxes with TV Out had only PAL. This was also mentioned in the IS documents for this stuff.
Back then I was just not realizing the thing but yeah Nintendo just did it in PAL and just ditched any Pre or Post Processing with that move. So a Dev (back then) in the US would need a Multi Norm TV to display it correctly.
