“It's a state-of-the-art virtual-reality device fitted with a fancy red screen! Really cutting-edge stuff! And red is all the rage, you know?”
Professor E. Gadd, Luigi's Mansion 3

The Virtual Boo is a device created by Professor E. Gadd in Luigi's Mansion 3, modeled after the Virtual Boy. Like the Game Boy Horror and Dual Scream in the previous games, it allows Luigi to communicate to E. Gadd, displays mission objectives and a map of the current floor, and displays the pause menu. Like on the actual Virtual Boy, its screen is displayed only in red and black colors. Its ringtone is an arrangement of the Main Theme from Luigi's Mansion.
