The Game Boy Advance was great for playing a whole slew of Pokemon games like Ruby and Emerald, but the handheld console could do a lot more than just provide advanced gaming. Learn some of the crazy ways the original console and the upgraded SP console were used over the years and how it could still be used today.

The backlit screen and advanced graphics made the GBA an ideal console for watching television and a tuned TV could be connected directly to the device. On old Game Boys, multiplayer action required a long cable, but now, players could connect wirelessly thanks to a special Game Boy Advance adapter. GBA accessory packs allowed you to completely transform your device with magnified screens, special joysticks and all types of themes. Multiple companies discovered ways to transform the Game Boy Advance into a working GPS device although the releases never went fully mainstream. Watching content on the GBA became easier thanks to a special adapter which allowed you to play both movies and audio files. Really take in the sounds of your favorite games with the use of add-on speakers that would make it look like a small surround sound system for your handheld console. One of the more unique releases for the GameBoy Advance was the E-Reader. A card reading system used to unlock extras and gain full access to games. Some medical devices with working screens on them actually relied on the Game Boy Advance hardware to get running and help save lives. Watch to see all of these Game Boy Advance secrets and hidden features!
