I had the "XPG" version and the headgear version when I was little. Of course it was just a cheap knockoff of the VB that basically stripped the VB of everything cool and just resulted in bad red/black LCD games. Pretty awful system but it's fairly nostalgic for me.

I got one second-hand from a thrift store. I don't remember playing it for more than a few minutes, and I've since taken it apart. I think I replaced the red LEDs in the back-light PCB with IR ones from various remote controls to make an IR illuminator. I was planning to use the "controller" as some kind of PC game-pad or RC remote, but it's lost in my junk-boxes somewhere Now that I think of it, it might be useful as a simple control pendant for my CNC machine... I'm pretty sure I still have the headband unit, too, although it's just an empty shell and a bit of elastic, at this point.

I almost bought one a few times, but nope... I don't have one. The games just really didn't look very good.

Ahh, Tiger's answer to the VB. I had both the Headset and the big clunky black & white R-Zone SuperScreen. While I sold that junk away to collectors on eBay awhile back, it is quite a nostalgic hunk of junk from the good ol' days when VB was in it's prime.

I'm the (proud?) owner of one.

Here's me wearing it.

I like how you used the Game Boy Camera to make that picture.
