I already saw this at the french robotic cup in 1999, here is Your chance to buy a mature kit: the Xport 2.0. You can now create amazing robot creations with a Game Boy and some LEGOs....

The new Xport 2.0 turns the Game Boy Advance (GBA) into a powerful embedded development system. 

  • 4 closed-loop back-EMF motor controllers
  • 16 digital sensor inputs
  • 8 analog sensor inputs
  • In-system NiCd, NiMH battery charger
  • Battery voltage monitor
  • Comprehensive open-source software
  • Optional Bluetooth and other accessories

Combine with a game boy advance, you have among other things a system:

  • Programmable in C or C++
  • PCM sound
  • 240x160 TFT color LCD
  • Powerful 32-bit RISC CPU
