Yes, after several months of work between myself and my as of yet unnamed project partner. We have completed the Pockulus Chip.
It is a wearable Virtual Boy emulation system, that will produce 3D visuals.

I have tried out several VB games on it and they are functioning quite well.

It works very well and you can either use the keyboard to play or an external usb controller.

For demonstration purposes; a picture of myself wearing it.
Also a photo with it plugged in to charge (it has 4 hours of mobile battery life) and a usb controller plugged in.

Itís got less resolution unfortunately, thatís why itís more of a novelty. I actually really like it though, as I can play any VB game instantly.

Looks like it's a lot more comfortable to play lying down than actual VB hardware.

Nice job! 👍

Something I thought Iíd mention is that individual games can be colorized (a shade of some color) how ever you like them to be (the colorization will be permanent unless you go back into the code and change it later).

So far, I have Wario Land in shades of blue (I also tried brown), Bound High in shades of Yellow, WaterWorld in shades of blue, Golf in shades green, V-Tetris in shades of orange. Itís actually quite fascinating to have games individually colorized.

I also changed the head strap to be outside as it was squeezing my face.

The ability to change the colors is sweet! I bet it reduces a bit of eye strain too depending on the color

Actually, Iím becoming fond of yellow for VB Wario Land (sort of feels like a flashlight in the darkness). I like the novelty of it all, itís definitely not a replacement for a real Virtual Boy but still itís quite enjoyable in its own right.
