Nintendo Flex: The Game Boy Redesigned by YJ Yoon

Published Jun 14, 2019

California-based South Korean designer YJ Yoon created this fantastic concept for the ‘Nintendo Flex’, a portable gaming device inspired by the classic Game Boy handheld.

Here’s some info from his website:

“I, and many others still play with my GAME BOY to bring out the nostalgia of my childhood. Playing with it reminds me of my younger memories. It was the first gaming console that I got as a birthday gift from my father. The feeling of the grip, pushing in and pulling out the game cartridges, and the analog gaming melody are still lovely.

Including a screen on the controller is the essential idea behind GAME BOY, initially electrifying players due to its new-found portability. The vertical layout of the console reflects how a human’s body is designed. Through technology developing, the new curved display allows for a more immersive experience, as the curve makes to fill more of the field of view.

While playing a game, each players’ right palm would contact or completely cover the original GAME BOY’s corner, where the speaker was located. Taking this classic design element, yet user experience flaw into consideration, I have utilized the iconic detail while relocating the speaker to the top of the device, efficiently delivering sound from the closest point to the player.”
