GAME BOY VIDEOPHONE
phoneboy
This is a neat little gizmo. Campho Advance is a device add-on for Game Boy Advance that turns the handheld videogame console into a videophone.

It works only if the person on the other end of the line has the same equipment; also doesn't seem to be wireless, which would be a natural for a portable device like this. Still, this is cool. It's got more value as a gee-whiz toy than as a real phone. As usual with this kind of stuff, it's available only in Japan.
