Unless I misinterpreted this, it would be just like the DS, except you don't actually need to touch the stylus to the screen.  :P

I see it now... airports across the world are close down due to flying Nintendo handhelds being misinterpreted as grenades.

As long as it still includes a touch screen (preferably a multi-touch screen like that on the iPhone) then it'll be good.

Kirby Tilt 'n Tumble was very good. I think this is naturally the next step...

...in like, 10 years, seeing as how many units the DS is selling right now.

there's already a motion sensor for the DS, but it's slot one and supposed to work with slot 2 supercards with homebrews using it, so I kinda saw this comming :P

Yeah, we already knew this patent was for their optical devide add-on since Nintendo just revealed it. They even have a camera add-on now.
