The Furrtek VirtualTap gives new life to nonfunctional VirtualBoy units. Many of these units that will be brought back to life will have non-functional eye-screens. For these units we can install a replacement for the eye lenses that allow the new video ports to be mounted without cutting any of the original plastics.

I have made a few versions that can be printed and installed in your VirtualBoy to customize to your liking.
- Multiout (use db Electronics Mulitout PCB)
- Power and Pallet Button
- Power and Mini Din Socket (there is a clip to secure the mini din socket in place)
The multiout has not been tested, but it is based off the multiout design done by db Electronics
This mod requires a VirtualTap installed in your VirtualBoy to function.
You will need a few extra things for this mod.

5.5mm x 2.1mm power jack https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01FDD42LQ/
Whichever video output connector you choose to use.
Jacob Proctor @tinkerplunk Requested this project and provided me his original VirtualBoy lenses to measure for this mod.
You can see the mod in action on his system here:
