For those unfamiliar with this technology from decades ago, the Nintendo Game Boy Camera was first released in 1998. It was released as a handheld camera for gamers to use. Its main purpose was to take grayscale photos. It also offered options to modify them or even create original designs. Players could transfer images from one GBC to another.

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

Production of this pocket camera ceased in 2002.

Meanwhile, a retro gaming enthusiast has just resurrected the Game Boy camera using it in a unique way.

A user named emil10001 managed to attach the pocket camera to his Steam Deck to get it working. Posting a video of the amazing build, they showed how the GBC works as expected while attached to the Steam Deck.

While the quality of this type of crossover isn’t great, the experience is still quite appealing. It also shows how compatible Valve’s portable gaming PC is, even with a tech product from 1998.
