Nintendo DS Tilt Sensor

NTR-Motion said Friday that it will soon release the DS Motion Card, a tilt-based sensor for Nintendo's DS and DS Lite handheld consoles. Similar to the Nintendo Wii's remote or Sony's Sixaxis controller for the PlayStation 3, the Motion Card combines an accelerometer with a gyroscope to measure both the angle and force of the DS as the user moves and pivots the system. This is the first such device for any handheld gaming system, NTR-Motion claims. Using the motion-sensitive features requires a DS that can run homebrew code, according to the company, but multiple art and game programs have already been written to take advantage of the design. Pre-orders begin today at DSPassMe for $25, with shipments set to begin in early January.
