Yea, I agree with speedy. Could it happen? of course. Any fan could make that with a rpi and some free time. But will Nintendo mass produce and sell something like that? Doubtful. I personally have no interest in this whole retro mini console craze. All it is is a way for companies to cash in by storing roms on a flash chip in a plastic shell and raking in the dough. I don't need a vb mini or a virtual boy emulator, just give me the good ol' fashioned clunky hardware and carts! That being said, if they did release one with dragonhopper included, I would buy it in a heartbeat, heh.

So I’d say the best route would be to buy a cheap smart phone:

flash a custom rom then remove all the phone stuff,
add a nice background, add a emulator for virtual boy,
add a charge extender,
modify a Google VR headset with the charge port and paint it,
add a custom painted Bluetooth controller
add all the ROMs to a SD card.

It would be light, wearable and probably really nice.

This is definitely a thing, but I think most of us are probably Nintendo re-releases it in some form, especially if the unearth Dragon Hopper and Zero Racers like speedy said

Nintendo for the most part doesn’t even acknowledge Virtual Boy beyond being a toy and not even a video game console. They would sadly never make such a device for us fans.

I don't think it will happen. VB is kind of a shame in Nintendo's history. They want to forget it. It's not even in the official timeline:
