Artists sure have gotten good at customizing the original Game Boy

Vadu Amka's Red and Blue design

I hadn't connected the dots until now, but artist Vadu Amka is responsible for a number of cool custom game system projects I've seen online, some more practical than others.

This latest one, a Pokemon-themed Game Boy, makes great use of Ken Sugimori's iconic Charizard and Blastoise designs. And the little touches, like the Pokeball buttons -- super cool.

There's supposedly at least one Easter egg in the design but I haven't found it yet.
