HyperBoy+ 32Mbit Flashcart

HyperBoy+ 32Mbit Flashcart

Note; This is a preorder.  Once preorders hit a minimum limit then I'll trigger the design update.  BWRY screens have already been ordered and software work is under way.  Expect units to ship around the July timeframe after design udpates are made and PCBs are made.  If minimum order limits aren't made, I'll refund everyone.  Thanks!


This is HyperBoy+.  All the same great things about HyperBoy but with a BWRY eInk panel.  Graphics are uploaded over USB like ROM files.  This product blurs the line between HyperFlash32 and HyperBoy, but I couldn't resist using these 4 color eInk panels for something.


HyperBoy+ is all about getting a cheaper flash cart for Virtual Boy out to VB gamers.  It's based on my HF32 design, but drops the cap touch buttons, haptic feedback, and SD card to reduce cost.  It requires a PC to update games and is still a "1 game at a time" cart.  I've also added some RetroOnyx flare to it like aluminum panels and eInk.  Lastely, it's the second ever VB flash cart built from 100% new parts.  No donors parts used for these!


Note: The Thunderstruck HyperBoyFlasher GUI or command line tools are required to use this product for both ROM updates and eInk label updates.  See the links below.
