Game Boy Colour emulator arrives for Android Wear

Someone has managed to get a Game Boy Colour emulator running on Android Wear devices.
 
One Android Wear device owner has managed to port a Game Boy Colour emulator onto his Samsung Gear Live, meaning you can play games like Pokemon or Tetris on your wrist.
 
YouTube user Corbin Davenport has posted a video online showing how to play Game Boy Colour games on your Android Wear watch, including the LG G Watch and Moto 360.
 
You’ll need to connect up an Bluetooth controller to actually play the games on Android Wear, but Davenport managed to connect a MOGA Hero Power gamepad with no issues.
 
Of course, it’s not exactly convenient. You’ll be able to play games on your smartwatch, but to actually do it properly you’ll need a gamepad too, which is far less portable than the watch you’re already wearing.
 
Davenport has managed to get some other more unusual Android apps running on his Gear Live too, including Minecraft Pocket Edition and even a demo of Windows 95 – if they’re more your thing.
 
If you do want to get the Game Boy Emulator for Android Wear, Davenport has published a handy how to guide that makes the whole process fairly straight forward.
