Virtual Boy emulators
From Emulation General Wiki
Virtual Boy is a supposedly handheld console released by Nintendo and created by Game Boy creator Gunpei Yokoi in 1995. It was the first games console to utilise 3D effects, however is notable for only displaying graphics in red and black, as well as requiring users to attach the console to their head, usually while rested on the included tripod. The product was pulled shortly after release due to the majority of users getting headaches from using it. Notably, it was rushed to market and was never meant to be released in its current form.
