I dislike the Nintendo 2DS' design, feeling its design seems to allow for easy slippage and other issues for both small and big hands alike. While the 2DS' official design isn't necessarily flawed or bad, I still decided to give a shot at redesigning it.
I have done quite a few alterations since my first upload of the redesign back in September 15, 2013 as seen here sta.sh/010tawg3nyq4
More or less this is like a 3DS unfolded flat, minus the hinge and with 90% of the button placement in the exact locations as the 3DS. The shoulder buttons are in a grove indent on the back, where the user's fingers can rest comfortably.
I designed two models; a Standard Model and a Deluxe Model. The Standard Model comes with a mono speaker like the official 2DS. However, the Deluxe Model comes with Stereo speakers.
Unlike the usual pin head holes with a low tech speaker behind them, the stereo speakers on the Deluxe Model are actually more like something off a small radio then a handheld device. Another way to look at them is that they like speakers you'd find in the DS Accessories department, the kind that plugs into the Headphone Jack. The only difference is that they're built in and keeps the Headphone Jack free, and no hanging cord to get in the way.
Maybe one day we'll get a model with blue-tooth so we can have wireless headphones and/or speakers to play our favorite games.
