Open Source Nintendo DS Bluetooth adapter

Gordan Savicic and Gottfried Haider of DSbrut fame have tipped us off that they’ve just released their DS Bluetooth adapter for the Nintendo DS.

Almost two years in the making, we’re happy to finally release our DS Bluetooth adapter. The tiny Slot-1 cartridge allows you to hook up the Nintendo DS wirelessly with other devices such as GPS-receivers, robots and so forth. Today we’re making all materials of the project openly available, including the schematics and a GPL-licensed software library for the Nintendo DS, because we believe in open hardware design and want to encourage collaboration in the hardware hacking community.

If you’ve got a homebrew Nintendo DS project that we should know about leave a link in the comments.


I make cool stuff and write about other people making cool stuff on If you have something you think I should see, send me a tip.
