Nintendo DS

A family of popular, handheld game consoles from Nintendo that features dual screens (the "DS"). The top screen is where the game is viewed and played while the bottom touchscreen is used to change settings and make game and user level selections. Introduced in 2004, the original DS was followed by the DS Lite, DSi, DSi XL and the 3DS.

In 2011, the DS family outsold all other products from the company, including the very popular Game Boy (introduced 1989), GameCube (2001) and Wii (2006).

The 3DS Autostereo Screen
Introduced in 2011, the 3DS provides a glasses-free 3D screen, using a parallax barrier that is adjustable to the amount of visual depth the user desires (see parallax 3D and 3D visualization). See video game console and gamer.

Popular with Kids
The Nintendo has been very popular with kids of all ages. With a year of gaming under his belt, the Nintendo DS keeps our four-year-old gamer quite entertained while mom shops.

Glasses-Free 3D With the 3DS
Like all DS models, the top screen shows the action, while the bottom one is used for configuration and selection. The 3DS also includes a front camera for putting the gamer's face into the scene, a rear camera for 3D photos and the Circle Pad (top) for more game control. See parallax 3D.

The backscattered field of the FSS can be split as a sum of two terms [15]: a structural mode and an antenna mode (also referred as tag mode), or in other words, a load-independent term and a load-dependent term, respectively:
In Tag Mode, the I2C interface is disconnected and RFID or NFC data is transferred over the external RF field.
The second component, hereafter called as the tag mode, is a part of the signal guided through each group of C-sections and modulated in time at different frequencies and re-transmitted by the output antenna.
Even though it improves the delay, the amplitude of the back scattered response of the C-section (tag mode) will be very low to detect.
As we already explained, the backscattered signal from the horizontally polarized tag antenna consists of structural mode and tag mode. The time [DELTA]t between these two modes is given by
In our case, [tau] will be a combination of two peaks, the first peak represents the structural mode, and the second peak represents the tag mode. The difference between these two peaks gives the delay of the tag ([Delay.sub.Tag]).
The delay between structural mode and tag mode will be the delay of the tag '[Delay.sub.tag]' and can be used for the encoding.
The Tag mode display option for bookmark has been added (Pro edition).
Wireless tag mode was also introduced, allowing for innovative player vs player ranking methods and gameplay between 3DS consoles - an example of this is seen below in the Super Street Fighter IV video, where collectable action figures loaded on one 3DS fight against the action figures loaded on a rival and nearby 3DS, and neither consoles even need to be turned on.
When in tag mode, you simply click on the face of a person in the photo and select a name from your Friends and Networks.
The instrument is also outfitted with three modes of operation to suit all needs: Non-logging Mode for continuous readings for surveying and site-checking; Tag Mode for data logged by tag name or number (ideal for U.S.
Three modes of operation include: Non-logging Mode for continuous reading; Tag Mode for data logged by tag name or number; and Interval Mode, which logs at pre-set intervals as well as displaying the TWA, STEL, PEAK and current readings at all times.
