The video of the day is the work of YouTubeur “The retro future“who recently bought a strange machine from a Japanese auction site. All that is more official is a Nintendo DS, or more precisely a DSi with a single notch and no buttons, speakers, or slot for the pen.
As shown in the video above, the only screen on this strange device is the bottom screen of the Nintendo handheld console and is tactile too. This means that you will find it more or less difficult to play certain titles from the huge catalog of the very popular DS.
How did it work
“”But what kind of machine is that?You wonder, you surely wonder. It’s a Nintendo Zone Box. The latter was a special version of his console which, together with a cartridge that was also very special, produced a “Nintendo Zone“on a local Wi-Fi network.
This Nintendo Zone then gave the users of a “normal” DS connecting this network the opportunity to download various things (trailers, demos, etc.) onto their consoles.
