>The Game Boy Pocket Sonar is a peripheral for the Nintendo Game Boy made by Bandai that used sonar to locate fish up to 20 meters (65 feet) underwater for the sport of fishing and contained a fishing mini-game.[1][2] It was released in Japan in 1998, but never released internationally.[3] It was the first sonar-enabled gaming accessory.[4]

Any other weird retro hardware that made no sense but still was pretty cool?

    >Wikiposting is a type of post where a user starts a thread by greentexting some bland descriptive information in the style of a wikipedia article excerpt. Wikiposting contributes nothing and is a form of low effort shitposting[6]. Wikiposting is rarely done by users who have been here for more than one summer. Such users are aware it rarely produces quality discourse and is universally despised. Wikiposting is done almost exclusively by newbies and underage[2] who lack the knowledge and communications skills to communicate with adults.

        I was genuinely surprised such a peripheral existed for a fricking game boy of all things. I'm going to go on YouTube to check it out now.

        I love when children copepost something they think is deep and wise but it's actually really embarrassing.
        I love when children do this because they can't into reading comprehension.

        I had one. It was actually pretty good at the time for the price. Quite a few of these "weird" things are

            I was actually agreeing with you and not the anon you replied to. See? This c**t of a board is unbrowsable, everyone's an idiot on edge or trying to get a rise from each other.
            but seriously give Big Rigs Over the Road Racing a try, it's actually a competent racing game for professionals.

        It's not even a video game though.
        It's a fish finder.

              synth software for all the various consoles that is still being developed and manufactured to this very day cannot be discussed

                Yes.
                Unless it's clearly meant to play around like Mario Paint's composer for example, it's not video games.
                Contrast that with GIMP. It's included in Sony's official PS2 Linux but clearly not a video game.

    Stuff like this kind of makes sense in retrospect
    Like you could easily see something like this being a phone accessory today
    PDAs were around back then, but they weren't ubiquitous and mostly limited to stuff you'd do for office work
    Why not make a utility for what amounts to an affordable pocket computer?

      Indeed. All you have to do is go on Amazon and you can see exactly that.
      At the time a GB was a pretty good option for a cheap consumer market controller with and LCD. It shouldn't be surprising that a number of products were developed to take advantage of this.

      Just embarrassing. You were in such a rush to pseudpost that you completely missed the part where none of your shitpost was actually relevant to anything ITT. Now you're booty blasted and coping like a mofo. If you want to keep digging that hole you're free to do that. Copeium is a powerful drug. But it's not going to end well for you.
