I took apart my VirtualBoy because it broke, this is one of the the "Screens" your looking into when you play a game on that console. I see why that thing chewed through batteries to often... I'm no expert, but it looks like the same principal as a scanning laser at a supermarket, a magnetically driven oscillating mirror reflects each row of pixels generated by the "screen" into a set of lenses and exits through the eye piece. Pretty sophisticated for a game console. shame there was only like 18 games for it... and shame it caused so many headaches afterwards :)

oh, in case your wondering, it's not on in this pict, I'm hitting it with a laser :)
