gameboy belt buckle

gameboy belt buckle

oh yeah. this is what the world needs next in mass production. now before you start yelling at me over belt buckles and nintendo’s obsession with them, let me point out this is not the NES belt buckle you all saw awhile back (though both are insanely cool and nostalgic) nor is this the game boy floppy disk drive we showed you. this is the work of an artist and hacker. one that isn’t afraid to make a statement with a working game boy strapped on as a belt buckle. the link provided shows you the play by play of how it’s made and how it’s applied and chromed out. within hours you’ll be sporting your bling bling belt buckle in all it’s nintendo glory. plus, take it to parties and insist that chicks play some link’s awakening and if they don’t get you past the first dungeon, there will be consequences. thanks [FRANKLI]

    *shakes in fear*

    Lets make one with the xbox!


    Velcro and belts doth not a hack make.

    maybe if he turned the screen 90 degrees so it looks normal I’d be impressed

  8. That guy has the same keyboard I do. He probably has a similarly-branded computer too. Interesting.

  11. Jessevd says:

    Perhaps. But you didn’t *DO* it, did you? That makes you more lame than -anyone- who actually builds something.

    While I think it’s… odd, it’s still unique, and fairly funny. I’ll never actually do this, but I think it’s great.
    To all the complainers out there, submit something better or be quiet.

    the quality of the hacks from here has gone to a new low.

    maybe its time to find other sites

    yeah i too make nes and snes belt buckles along with nes cartridges, but velcroing things to your pants isnt really a hack. i can velcro many things to my pants with great ease, why dont i just stick velcro on the back of my ipod and its a buckle bam, same thing with my cellphone, or a lunchbox.

  18. K says:

    seems like an advance would make a better belt buckle

    “But you didn’t *DO* it, did you? That makes you more lame than -anyone- who actually builds something.”

    Er…no. NOT gluing a gameboy on a belt actually makes you far cooler than somebody who has.

    You got it backwards, you see.

  20. Robby Hart says:

    haha! i made one of those last year with an original gameboy. didnt hold up the pants very well, but it worked just the same.

  21. EvilChicken6892 says:

    lame. I could make one better. atleast one that actually IS the buckle

  22. Kyle says:

    Like ppl said, “gluing a gameboy 2 ur belt dosnt make u cool.” i have an old GB color. i will look into some other ways to do this, so it holds up your pants AND is cool. *just an idea-wouldn,t it be cool if u cud take it off and play whenever u wanted to?? just an idea*

  23. bob says:

    if the gameboy did something cool like talk or play music, this would be a hack. as it is, this is beyond lame

  24. faT CAT says:

    I’d like to make one with my GBA.
