Nintendo Ds Jumbotron: the Portable Gets Luggable

by Paul Strauss

An enterprising builder going only by the name “Loopy” has created a mash-up between a pair of tablet PC screens and a Nintendo DS to give birth to this monstrous offspring.

Nintendo Jumbotron DS Lite

Just like its portable inspiration, the Jumbotron DS has dual screens, with stylus-based control on the bottom one. However, these screens measure in at about 15-inches each, compared to the tiny 3-inch screens on the standard DS.

To make it all work, Loopy used an FPGA to translate the input from the tablet PC back into data usable by the DS. While it all looks a bit like something out of Dr. Frankenstein’s (or Dexter’s) laboratory, I still think it’s a pretty clever hack.

Now if only I could figure out how to fit the damned thing in my pocket.
