Korg DS-10: Nintendo DS can now be an Analog Synth!


Despite all the attention the Apple iPhone is getting for making downloadable applications available in their store, there are still other interesting portable devices to consider, like the Nintendo DS. Though it's mostly a game system, this little pen-based dual screen computer is starting to get a few non-game programs, such as this really cool patchable analog synthesizer from a real music company, Korg.

Seems like Sony's Portable Playstation (PSP) is getting further and further behind when it comes to cool non-game apps, which is a pity.

Dancing Puppet Game on the Nintendo Wii!


I knew it would happen eventually.

Electronic Arts (Montreal Division) is about to release a game called "Boogie" that seems a lot like my idea for a combined Dance Dance Revolution, Guitar Hero, and puppetry performance game. Curious to see how they've used the Wii's controller for making the character dance. Are you just triggering dance motions with certain gestures, or can you really put your own nuance into the movement?

I hope it does well, so that publishers will be open to more puppetry-oriented games.
