Tiny Cartridge 3DS

A Wii U GamePad made out of cardboard! Nintendo and Hatena made this cute mock-up, which even features grips in the back and a slot to insert different “screens,” just to get an early idea of how the tablet would feel and look as they designed different services for the Wii U.

It’s a lot like that cute cardboard 3DS someone made while waiting for Nintendo to debut the real thing!

Pass the break, two videos of the GamePad showing off how you can move some Wii U games from your TV to the tablet, and also how you can take a break from playing to post messages/screenshots onto Miiverse, browse the internet, find stuff to watch on your TV, etc.
