A fun little read about the author's experiences with the Virtual Boy.

it started out so strong and confusingly ended in a completely different spot. i thought it was going to be an article praising the VB for what it was, what it hoped to accomplish, how different it was, etc, but instead if was about how he failed to purchase one.

still, pretty cool that people continue to publish articles about the VB, even in 2013.

I agree!

BTW, I have an "R-Zone". Modified it to FULL COLOR --- well, sorta. Changed the red LED for a WHITE, inverted the field, replaced the mirror (the polycarbonate supplied only reflects red light), and put the little 35mm color film cells in each cartridge. Had to re-invert the field in some games (space is supposed to be BLACK with WHITE stars!). But he's right, it is just a "heads-up of a handheld LCD game". Not very exciting.

...the "Virtual Boy" is far more exciting...

:-D
