Everyone needs a gigantic cardboard Game Boy

Finally, we have a Game Boy Color a giant can use, if he doesn't mind that it's made entirely out of cardboard. DeviantArt member MaboroshiTira lovingly constructed not only a massive Game Boy but also a removable cartridge for it. The level of detail even in the little speaker hole is mind-blowing. 

Jamie, the artist behind this project, built the Game Boy as part of her schoolwork as an art student at the University of Delaware. All the moving parts from the actual handheld, like the buttons and volume wheel, also move in this massive cardboard reproduction. 

I think Jamie deserves a great grade for this labor-intensive project. You can check out the step-by-step build on her Tumblr
