    That's... not at all uncommon for Nintendo's consoles. It tends to hold up just fine.

    I'm more interested in discussing the clear shell, and wondering where I can get one for a normal 3DS.

    I don't understand the whole thing... whats wrong with the 3DS... is it... because the cables are twisted? Who cares. As long as they don't get twisted every day in the other direction.. they won't break.

    AND... YES! Custom shells are a great thing!

    The text in the picture says

    "This hinged part has 3 Flexible printed circuits passing through it."

    I feel like its a picture explaining what it should look like after you've done the case mod.
