    I lost my original AR Cards that came with the 3DS, Nintendo wants $4 bucks including shipping for them to replaced but I don't want to pay.
    I printed them out off the net, got them laminated at Staples for $2 bucks and cut them don to size nice and neatly. They look pretty good
    and can't be bent too easily now that they are laminated.

    Here's a picture below of how they look.

    Could you explain to me what's wrong with the thread? The AR Cards are an accessory for the 3DS so I posted it in the "3DS - Console, Accessories and Hardware". All I did as point out that I lost my Cards, printed out new ones and got them laminated. Point of discussion here is a few things.

    1) What to do if you lose your AR Cards.
    2) Why laminating your AR Cards could be good.
    3) Where to get replacement AR Cards.

    So now I will ask you.

    Why did you post in my topic?

    I d/l'd the AR card pics from Nintendo and made replacements, but I didn't get that elaborate. I just printed 'em out, cut them out roughly, glued them to index cards, then cut them out more carefully after the glue had dried. If they get bent or whatever, I'll make more. It's great that Nintendo made those files available ... I've got a 7 yr old and the originals wouldn't have lasted a week.

    This thread is pointless. You aren't the only person to do this (Nintendo even says to do this if your AR cards are lost or damaged).

    This thread is just for attention.

    My mom threw my AR cards. She didn't knew that they are and what its use so she included that in the trash @_@ Now, I use my PSP photo viewer to view AR cards. And the poster over talking about the cellphone is right. You can use AR now in the dark [​IMG]

    That was weird to say. He just shared what he did. Does not matter if someone else did it, everyone in this world combined already did everything. Haha

    Nice job though, lamination makes that stuff look more legit in my opinion. But I use my PSP for AR cards. I would like Digital AR cards with a light built in if they had those.

    the cards are only recognized by shape, correct? i'm thinking of etched glass lit up with LEDs. =P

    Pretty cool. I blew up the ? Mark AR card on my 40" Google TV, and it allowed me to fight a huge dragon.

    Wow! Think about it, it would be awesome to fight a giant dragon.
    BTW: Does the fighting get harder if the dragon is bigger?

    Bigger target=Easily Defeated.

    It may be a bit more difficult to hit the targets though.
