    It really is GTA5 and it really is an unmodified, original Game Boy, although the distinction between playing on and running on is important here. He's using a self-contained WiFi cartridge (a much more significant achievement than I'd realised, documented in a previous video) to stream the gameplay from a PlayStation and send control signals back the other way.

    I came across this channel a few months ago and I'm astonished at the skillset and quality, and kind of amazed he has 20k subscribers rather than 200k. Using structure growth to animate circuit board construction in blender, and a particularly well implemented LED cube were other highlights.

    Definitely not the same build quality and the overall result isn't as good, but everything runs off a raspberry pi inside the cartridge instead of streaming video from a playstation, which is more impressive in some ways. The making-of video goes into more technical details of how he pulled off such a janky hack.
