Is This The Smallest Game Boy Ever Made?

The original Game Boy was big enough to fit in an enormous pocket. This Game Boy is big enough — make that, small enough — to clean your teeth.

Measuring 0.02mm by 0.1mm, this Game Boy cannot play video games of course, but it does have drawn on buttons and a screen. It's smaller than a one yen coin (which is small, like a penny).

This video was originally uploaded on Japanese video site Nico Nico Douga for an online D.I.Y. festival.

This creation took four hours and after sculpting the Game Boy shape, complete with cartridge slot, it was a matter of painting it. Like the tooth pick sculpture itself, that was easier said than done.

    Biggest coin ever made.

    It's a neat litle sculpture. If I ever get my hands on nanoscale 3D printing, man, those gameboys will be rocking.

    Aww lame. I was hoping it could play games, even if it was lame DOS stuff...

    I'm sure them dimensions are wrong unless that coin is smaller than 1mm in diameter.

      A 1-yen coin is 20mm wide, which would indicate the model is about 2mm wide and 4.2mm long, judging from the photo.

      Coin is ~350px wide, gameboy is 34x73

        Thought so 0.02 mm is fuckin small.
