    I've never seen this ever.
    Was this for those special downloadable demos/pokemon kiosks?

    If this is a DS-based device, could you try dumping the firmware and BIOSs, using a flashcart and the homebrew dsbf_dump?

    The original DS download station just used 3 DS consoles. As far as I could tell, they were absolutely identical to the retail ones - at the least, the download station card worked fine in a retail and regular games also worked on the machines that came out of the download station.

    I suspect those units plugged into the download station in place of the DSes, and are probably basically a DS with extra hardware.

    do you think you could try to dump the bios/firmware using a flash card or by disassembling it?

    is your sensitive info? or info from where it was used in the past?

    also, does it manage to download from the internet? does it supply any demos?

    judging from the graphics in the screen this thing looks like it might be based on a DSi...

    Yeah, it is a downstripped DSi with only one screen instead of two. Very interesting device indeed!

    Anyone have a copy of this pic? The three in the OP are available through archive.org, but not this one.
