It turns out that my older son has upcycling talents, too! He came across an original Nintendo Game Boy (1st gen), and he wanted to resurrect it. That didn't work out, so he decided to turn it into an external hard drive.
He gutted the Game Boy. He also has the hard drive and cord.
He had to do some trimming back of the plastic frame, to allow the cord to be able to make it through the side of the case.
The hard drive is in, and the cord now goes through.
The power light shines through here....
Last but not least.... foil to cover where the broken screen was.
Here's the back.... the cord can be safely tucked away when it's not in use.
I'm so proud!!!!!
