o.0 That's crazy. And almost completely useless. I can understand how a Slot-2 of this would be helpful.. but slot-1??

Blue Tooth on DS seems very pointless to me, who is even going to use it other than reviewers or people who can afford it. I mean really the DS web browser and the DS MP3 Player were better ideas than this...

It's a toy for people who want to make their DS to talk to other things they're making or building, and I think that's pretty cool. If you can't think how to use it then it's probably not intended for you.

Their target audience is hardware developers, the entire project is open source so the interested can even build one themselves. Build your own robot and drive it around the desk with your DS? Come on you can't deny that'd be fun.

This is the same team that did the serial adapter for slot 1, ideal for use with one of the older slot 2 carts and a passkey/flashme, but they do state you can swap cartridges to get it working with a slot 1 cart. Bluetooth is an expansion on that idea, so at a guess that's probably why it's still on slot 1.

No. (Probably because it was in the wrong section)


But it's an interesting idea. And with the DSi it could be used for things such as transferring files wirelessly i.e. you took a picture on your phone and you want it on your DS, just pair the devices and copy away... Granted there are other ways to do these things but it's an interesting concept none the less.

someone once saw my DS recently and asked what it was... i said it was a DS and he asked what does it do? I said everything so he said everything? does it have bluetooth and i was like well...
i guess i can tell him "YES IN YOUR FACE!"
what i find really interesting is how they will implement this
