Cnet:Bombproof gadgets: Our most trusty technology
Nintendo Game Boy
There’s no two ways about it: the original Game Boy is one of the hardest gadgets ever conceived. Rumour has it this beige behemoth isn’t made of plastic, but from the skulls of fallen Gurkhas. If you ever saw one that was broken, it’s because it lost a boxing match with a nuclear bomb — on points.
It was big, heavy, and the only colours it could show were black, green, and the blood of its victims. But it remains the only thing I’ve never cackhandedly broken. We were going to do a gag at the end of this feature where I endorse a massive pile of broken tech, but Game Boy has defeated me. Damn him. -Rory Reid
Its good to know that if unicorns relay do take over the world and destroy us all with their nuclear weapons, that our old gamboys will be safe.
