I'm really interested in Chip Decapping for 3DS and what will it bring.​
I searched thngs related to it and found this (i will post more links) It is called "Chip Art"
It's microscopic artwork built into integrated circuits of a Chip.​
It's so tiny that you need Microscope to see it :D
Links to Chip Art:​
If you find something related to this, post it here so everyone and myself else can see it.
And also, have fun and try to respect each other :)
Image of a buffalo, trailing buffalo chips,​
etched on a digital filter chip from the​
HP3582a audio spectrum analyzer.​
This classic dolphin image and Nintendo logo​
come from somewhere deep inside the Nintendo Game Cube.​
(I guess that's Why GC - Wii Emulator is called "Dolphin" :rolleyes: )​
P.S. What do you think they will find on 3DS chip? :ninja:

That's interesting, but is this really in the right section?

Hm, don't know really. I thought about where to put it, but i think it should be here because of 3DS decapping and all...

So where do you propose i should move it?

And also, if there's some Admin watching this Thread, is it OK for this to be here, in this section?

The dolphin emulator is called so because the codename for the Gamecube was "Dolphin", just as Revolution was the code name for the Wii.

I'm moving it to the art section, as it's not only about 3DS or even consoles.


I didn't know there where such arts and that it was a common practice.
This is interesting.

It was forever ago, but there was a special on this on some channel, trying to dig into it now but no such luck. The biggest one that stuck out was the Alien chipset from Space Invader.

Yeah, me nether 'till today. Interesting indeed :D

Sure but who knew they will put a Dolphin image inside the Chip :D
And also, since there probably is a symbolism for that, why Dolphin in the first place, why not Shark or whatever... ?

By the way, Question for all: What do you think is inside 3DS's Chip? :ph34r:

After extensive research and calculating many variables I've brought it down to 2 logical possibilities.

1. Pikachu. Why? Because Pokemon!
2. A potato chip. Why? 3DS chip, potato chip it's close enough
Don't ask how I came up with these 2 brilliant answers. :)

Well, if you really must know.
sqrt[(3ds*the number of posts in this thread)/(length of Pikachu's tail-money in Nintendo boss' pocket)+/-(random number picked by me*random number picked by you)]
Now don't ask how I knew the number you picked when I didn't even ask you. :ninja:

    I wonder...how would the gaming scene have changed had the Wii (and its bullshit motion controls and criminally neglected Classic Controller) failed?

  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    Microsoft certainly wouldn't have experimented with the Kinect, that's for sure. Would Nintendo have released something like the Wii U early?
    Gift
  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    That would've had a different name, so as not to tie it to its failed predecessor (something the Wii U dearly wished it has gotten anyway).

  • Veho @ Veho:
    PlayStation 2 already had that EyeToy thing before the Wii, and a whole lot of games supported it. Microsoft would have had something like the Kinect even if the Wii failed.

    For some reason, some Amazon reviews said it was a scam 'cause it launch there before they made an official launch on their webpage...anyway, according to people, it's good...it was gonna be my first option to buy when I wanted something to farm in games automatically, but then I backed down since tax fees and shipping would have costed me a fortune to Mexico...
