Happy Birthday Boy, Game Boy!

Happy Birthday Boy, Game Boy!

Today we celebrate 30 years of this amazing device, the original Game Boy. For a kid of the 80’s, I have found memories of my first computing platform. Fast forward 30 years, and my 3-year old daughter tried to play with it by touching the screen. Funny to see how far we’ve come in 3 decades… 

We looked at the 1989 Game Boy under x-rays, it’s incredible how clean and simple it is. After all, we’re talking 1989 electronics. And yet, this little device was able to keep us entertained for so many hours.
