Looking at the video released by Mr. Zhuowei Zhang, you can see the video of Mario Kart DS on the left side of the screen and the Nintendo Switch on the right side.

A smartphone displaying a QR code is tied to the Nintendo Switch with a string, and the image of the Nintendo DS is displayed in real time three-dimensionally at the top of the Nintendo Switch. These are game images and AR images reproduced on the iPhone screen.
You can check the scenery, characters, item boxes, etc. in 3D images. It seems that the operation of Mario Kart itself is done with Nintendo Switch.
Pokemon Black ' can also be displayed, but the background is somewhat strange. This is because it was tested at the angle used in Mario Kart DS. In another software with a different angle, nothing will be displayed unless the shader that cuts out the model is deleted.
Zhang uses Nintendo DS emulators melonDS and Delta to run the game on the iPhone, while MelonRipper is used to rip 3D models from the game and renders using Apple's AR creation kit, RealityKit . It is said that it is going.
It should be noted that this technology is only a concept. At the time of article creation, it seems that there is a problem that the application crashes after a few minutes.
