Random: Find out how the world’s largest working Nintendo DS was created
We’ve all heard of the phrase “go big or go home”, right? Well YouTuber and all-around tech wizard Bigrig Creates seems to have fully embodied his message with his latest video in which he assembles the world’s greatest Nintendo DS.
Share the video on his YouTube channelBigRig assembles the system’s signature dual screens by combining a McDonald’s touchscreen table and a large computer monitor before 3D printing all relevant buttons and D-pads.
The technical magic that goes into the electrical setup of this massive device is somewhat overshadowed by the fact that this device actually works! Demonstrating McDonald’s training simulator software, as well as Super Mario 64, Mario Kart DS and Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter, the ‘DS XXL’ (although we think XXXXL may be more accurate, if not a bit stuffy ) manages to run every iconic game and even improves graphics resolution in the process.
As you can see in the video above, the size of this gargantuan DS can’t make games somewhat difficult to play – we can only imagine the arm’s reach that would go into drifting Rainbow’s heart-rending turns. Road!
Never mind hitting the system with a red mushroom, this massive project brings out the big guns (a mega yellow mushroom, of course) to create the greatest playable edition of this cracking console. While it would take hands the size of Bowser to effectively support it, BigRig’s design is truly impressive…although it does impact DS portability somewhat.
Luckily, this system isn’t commercially available, otherwise we might try adding it to our collections of bulging retro consoles.
