Plans advance for Game Boy hacking kit

A Game Boy Advance customer dissatisfied with the portable game machine's dimly lit screen is moving ahead with plans to sell a do-it-yourself modification kit. Adam Curtis announced he will start taking advance orders Friday for The Afterburner, a $35 kit that will allow GBA owners who don't mind voiding their warranty to install an internal light source in the Nintendo game machine. Shortly after the GBA arrived in the United States, Curtis launched the Portable Monopoly site to protest the screen's poor illumination and to search for remedies.
