Introducing... the FlashBoy!

Richard Hutchinson, maker of the Vectrex USB flash cart "VecFlash", has had a Virtual Boy flash cart, called the "FlashBoy", in the works for some time now. He now finally got it to a working stage and showed some first images of the assembled cart. Other images show the innards of the cartridge, as well as the loader software. I'll keep you informed as the project progresses and when you can order your unit.

Woohoo!!!!! I can't wait! I never had the funds or was "technically gifted" enough to make my own VB flash cart. I always wanted to get started homebrewing, but I don't know C. Maybe now I have motivation to learn. I hope this one is within my price range...

Is this what will give us ordinary people the possibility to play games like virtual Lab or Bound High as well?

I'm also dying to see this project come true. I personally don't own any of Richard's previous carts, but it seems this is a state-of-the-art job extremely well done. A+.
