Some people are never satisfied with the Nintendo DS. Despite all its success over the years, various gamers can't wait to give it an overhaul, whether it's a Guitar Hero mashup or some ungodly Swarovski treatment.
Korg and AQ Interactive, however, are at least coming up with a new use for the handheld that isn't completely bizarre. (Whether there'll be a demand for it is another matter.) The two are partnering to develop a virtual version of the Korg MS-10--the vintage synthesizer of the big-hair '80s--specifically for the DS.
And lest you think this is some lame hack, Tech Digest says the "Korg DS-10 is "a fully functioning, absolutely 100 percent official synth, drum machine, and sequencer." Controlled by touch screen and stylus, it will join the ever-expanding ranks of mini-studios that can make anyone a pocket DJ--which may or may not be such a good thing.
