Tiny hotness: playing the Wii on a GBA SP (update 1)

In using a special cartridge that allows a video signal to be sent to the GBA, You Tube user jackal27 rocks his Wii on the portable's tiny screen. Obviously, the practical use of such a feature is almost nonexistent, but it makes for a fun little You Tube video. Check out the video, which has been embedded past the post break.

Update: me am not so English good (I omitted a word or two in the post).

2. Nice work!
I've seen the adapters offered online but I applaud the creative use!

Still nice to see the GBA able to hang a little today.

4. My only problem is getting the sensor bar to stick. How about releasing a folding bar for the complete Wii-pocket experience. :-)

5. Sounds fun and I guess this is done just to say "I done it", but why the hell would you need this, but I would say that is just the point.
