Mustache Mayhem is built into a Nintendo Virtual Boy housing. The Virtual Boy itself was broken, and unfortunately was beyond repair.

He kept the original audio amplifier, speakers, and controller connector. Angstrom Linux boots into Joe’s software, which uses OpenCV to detect faces and overlay mustaches.
