Nintendo launching glasses-free 3D DS next month
Nintendo is working to update its DS handheld game console with the 3DS, coming to Japan February 26th. The 3DS is a dual-screen unit - a touchscreen bottom screen and a 3D upper screen. The glasses free console runs on two 266 MHz ARM processors, comes with a 2 GB SD card for expansion and a charging cradle as opposed to a plug-in connection. It will also have a gyroscope and accelerometer so it can sense motion.
LED lights act as indicators on the unit with a green light meaning the unit is fully charged, a red light meaning the battery is low, and an orange light indicating the presence of a friend online.
Pilotwings Resort, Nintendogs and Cats, Steeldiver (a submarine game), Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of Time 3-D and Kid Icarus: Uprising will all be available when the unit launches next month for the equivalent of US$300.
