Here they are people.

Gameboy mods and other bits

For first place this year, we’re very pleased to bring you a MidiBoy by NeX. It’s an all-yellow fully Midi gameboy with a switchable pitch bend, biverted backlight and flush prosound. If you haven’t seen one of these, then they are about as pimped as a Gameboy can get.

Fifth place is a 64MB rewritable EMS cartridge. The top ten all receive a Luftek Micro USB to DMG adapter each. There are seven bundles of stickers, backplates, buttons, and bits & bobs too!

Additionally, I have some other components that’ll get thrown in for good measure. I have a few lovely things kicking around.

Thanks to our sponsors:

USB to DMG power adapters – a reality!

May 10, 2013 in News

“Why hasn’t someone invented USB to DMG power adapters yet, considering it’s the NNth century?” every chip girl and guy has asked themselves.

Well actually, someone did. Luktek, an electrical engineer in Slovenia decided to play about with the DMG and made exactly that recently, offering the adapters for sale on his blog.

Powering the DMG from an iPad is a nifty trick. Sounds sweet? Well it gets sweet-a-riffic. The greater news is that Luftek has kindly sponsored ten of these: one each for the top ten winners of this years LSDJ Showdown. If you can’t bring yourself to either wait or prove yourself enough to be placed in the top ten for the 2013 Showdown, you can buy them online for $5 a piece with $3 dollars shipping at his online shop.

A big thanks to Skinwalker for bringing it to my attention.

I’ve added a shipping calculator to my listing for backlights, which has removed the guesswork and allowed me to significantly reduce the cost per item. Get em while you can.
