Default Virtual Boy Emulation

Does anyone know if a Virtual Boy Emulator has ever been released, or if one is being worked on for Android? I picked up an EVO3d off a friend and was thinking it should be feasible, and would show the 3d display off very well... I know it only has ~20 titles, so it's a long shot...
Its not the clothes that make the man, its the phone.

I don't think they have one out yet, lots of GBA and others out there though!

Not Game Boy or GBA, but Virtual Boy.

Virtual Boy is a Nintendo game console released in mid-1990s with 3D single-colored display. Players are required to put it on like glasses to play it. see its wikipedia article for details

Default Virtual Boy in DOS in Android

Alternatively what you can do is run the DOS version of Reality Boy in a DOSBox port running on Android. I tried this and it was able to run the graphics at about 2 fps, so it's not really playable. I don't think the sound worked either.

Anyway, while I'd be willing to pay several monies for one, I think the above is the closest you'll come, short of some RDP solution.

Default RetroArch

RetroArch seems to be the only one there is for Android. Emulates a bunch of other stuff too.
Only thing: only emulates one d-pad, not two like on the Virtual Boy.
