Wow Olimar supersized the DS! -

Here’s a little project I’ve been working on. It’s a Nintendo DS hooked up to 2 Tablet PC screens, using an FPGA in between to do some translation magic. Pen input from the Tablet PC screens is sent back to the DS. It can also dump screenshots to a PC via serial port.

Jumbotron DS – Nintendo DS with two huge screens – Link.
