    I was thinking that a screenshot taker on the DS would be a neat application. You could take screens of Japanese game you want to show, or screenshots for uploaded files and stuff. I don't know if it would be possible, but I think it would be a cool idea.

    There is a way to output DS games to computers/tv, but you pretty much have to work for a major media company to access it.

    Though somebody did hack their DS to allow them to play it on 2 tablet PCs...

    Possible with a lot of extra hardware (Ignore the giant screens)

    Yeah, according to TC, it's possible with work but only one screen (the primary display) can be captured.

    The topic is here if anyone's interested.

    True: see gbatek (the first place you should look for anything technical.
