Game Boy Color IR Touch Sensor Cover

Retro Modding
| /

If you have a modded Game Boy Color that has a touch brightness sensor, or simply want to add a little bit of extra color to your console, these custom 3D-printed IR covers are for you! These covers fit both OEM and aftermarket shells, and fit the touch brightness sensor on the IPS LCD and similar backlit LCDs. 


  • 3D-printed replacement IR port cover
  • Compatible with both OEM and aftermarket shells
  • Available in a variety of colors
  • Wide enough to fit the IPS touch sensor, while also thin enough to register touch input
  • Satisfying textured feel


        In order for this IR cover to be compatible with all Game Boy Color shells, there are risers on each side that may need to be removed. These are a different color than the rest of the IR cover, to make them easy to identify. Attempt to fit the IR cover into the shell; if the IR cover does not fit, gently break off these risers with a pair of side cutters. 

        If you would like to print a touch sensor cover yourself, you can find the file on our Thingiverse page here.

        • Colors may vary from what you see on your display
        • While this product is designed for and functions with touch sensors such as the one used with the IPS, the IR sensor will likely not function

          Great accent piece

          Great way to add a-little extra personal style to your GBC build.

          Doesn’t fit well

          It wiggles around a little after being installed, and there’s a visible gap instead of it having a snug fit.

          Hi Rachelle,

          Thank you for this honest review. We are sorry to hear about this issue. We would love to send you a replacement. Can you send us an email at to arrange this replacement?

          Best community to look for when modding gameboys. The inventory is catagorized and documentation is punctual. Best experience when handling diy, or learning about specific technical layouts. 9/10 will buy again. Hopefully a new batch of everdrives will be available then. Thankyou and welcome

          If you do an IPS swap

          Highly suggest these for touch sensor

          Great Quality

          If you have an IPS screen with touch capabilities. I highly suggest this product
