    Has anyone done any hardware mods to their 3ds? I haven't seen any cool things with it like LED buttons, different outer shells etc etc. would be cool to also have a clear 3ds shell haha.

    Not at all. The clear shell modification is a 3rd-party item that, when done, will void your warranty, but if you keep the sticker perfectly intact, you may be able to get away with it.

    You could request to Ben Heck perhaps. Ask him to mod the 3DS system into something else, like maybe 3DS arcade machine, or 3DS with external controller or something.

    So, is it possible?

    Possible sure, probably even quite doable if you are versed in digital electronics and what goes there (we have apparently already had people decode the signals manually). Chances of it being a simple "buy a screen and fiddle with this connector" or even "buy a screen and do a bunch of straight soldering" on the other hand are somewhat smaller.

    As for the OP... afraid I have not seen anything but I tend not to pay much attention to this until actual interesting things like audio replacements, comfort/remapping/game use mods for buttons and TV decoder type things start happening. I had considered trying my hand at it (as in do it and ultimately sell copies/parts/kits) but the 3ds library is terribly unappealing to me and in my experience the overlap of those that appreciate good engineering and those that play games is not the largest which tempers my ambition a bit.
