The Game Boy Camera wiki last edited by Jagged85 on 05/01/14 04:53PM View full history


The Gameboy Camera is an add-on for the Game Boy that takes low-quality black & white pictures and provides very limited editing tools. There are also mini-games that utilize the pictures taken, such as a juggling game and a vertical space shooter. It was awarded The World's Smallest Digital Camera by the Guinness Book of World Records in 1999. An optional printer could also be used in tandem with the camera that could print the pictures via heat-based printing technology, instead of conventional ink. These pictures could then be stuck to objects via an adhesive backing.

The Game Boy Camera has been credited for, among other things, originating the modern concept of the selfie.
