For those unfamiliar with this piece of technology from decades ago, the Nintendo Game Boy Camera was first released in 1998. It was released as a pocket camera for the players. Its main purpose was to capture grayscale photos. It also offered options to edit them or even create original drawings. Players could transfer the images from one GBC to the other.

Back when the world didn’t even know the term selfie, Nintendo offered a front-facing camera on this device for users to take photos of themselves. Guinness recognized it as the smallest digital camera in the world in 1999.

This pocket camera was discontinued in 2002.

Meanwhile, a retro gaming fan addict just revived the Game Boy camera by using it in a unique way.

A user named emil10001 managed to get the Pocket Camera attached to their Steam Deck to make it work. They posted a video of the amazing build, showing the GBC performing as intended while attached to the Steam Deck.

While the quality that comes out of this type of crossover won’t be great, the experiment is definitely very appealing. It also shows how compatible Valve’s handheld gaming PC is, even with a 1998 tech product.
