Nintendo DS + Colors

This sounds just too good to be true, if you adapt the DS for homebrew software, you can actually use it as a portable digital painting device! Considering all you really need is a DS (£99) and the R4 DS (£20) to get the "Colors" software up and running. This sounds like a much cheaper alternative to buying a Wacom Cintiq 12WX which clocks in at about £550 ($999) and still requires a shit load of cables to plug it into the mains (so not all that portable if you're outside, or nowhere near an actual plug socket).

Now i realise that this software is not going to come anywhere close to the level of sophistication of Photoshop or Painter, but to be able to go anywhere and render up a quick digital painting sounds like a lot of fun to me!

I've been trying to decide which portable games system to get for a while now, i was thinking about purchasing a PSP, after reading about this though, there really is no contest >_<
