What is it about that certain black, grey, and red color scheme that just seems to give gadgets more street cred? Nintendo-fanantic Kotami (whom you may remember from the NEStation mod) is back with a new, old-school take on the DS that faithfully represents the original NES's design scheme, right down to the button coloring, accent bars, and spot-on fonts. No functional changes here, just a nice paint job (what'd you expect him to do, rig it to actually control the 8-bit system?), but with Nintendo seemingly down with similar retro-styling for their products, this is one mod that may actually go commercial someday.
