  2. Virtual Boy

    The first Nintendo console with 3D graphics, the concept was to create a virtual reality experience. The system featured a pair of goggles to look into which sent a slightly different image to each eye, creating the 3D effect. The graphics could only be displayed in red and black. The system reportedly caused headaches and nausea, leading to low sales. It was discontinued less than a year after it was released. (1995)

  8. Nintendo DSi

    The second redesign of the Nintendo DS line. It is slightly bigger, thinner, and brighter than the DS Lite. It was the first Nintendo handheld to feature multimedia. It featured a 0.3 megapixel camera that you could have fun with by editing pictures etc. It also featured a music app where you could record your voice and then play around with it. You could also listen to actual music. Lastly it featured the shop app where you could download games etc. The backwards compatibility for Game Boy Advance games disappeared in this version of the DS, which caused alot of disappointment when it came out. On the other hand, it also had a few exclusive games that can't be played on the original DS and DS Lite. (2008)
