* Modding a DS to play Legacy cartridges

Mobile gaming (GBA/etc)
Someone's done something I was wondering about - they've modified a Nintendo DS to accept GB and GBC cartridges.

Or that was the news... seems the link has already been pulled by the time I've written this.

Apparently it's illegitimate, since the GBA and GB worked on different voltages; the GBA had an internal switch that changed the voltages when a GB cart was inserted.

Slashdot has speculation that by emulating the GB or GBC on the GBA, which has been a project of coders in the past, it might be possible to get the functionality using a GB Rom inserted into a GBA flash card.
