Going Retro

I used to play with my cousin's Nintendo Game 'N Watch handheld games when I was a kid. Looking back, those devices weren't really interesting with their rubber buttons, burnished metal casing and staid gameplay.

But one thing did stand out and that was the dual-screens used in one of those devices. This design has proven to be enduring and is being revisited by the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite. Going retro is the new black.
