Most parents would cringe at this, but that’s precisely what Nintendo’s general manager, Shigeru Miyamoto, wants to do. What are we talking about? Well, Nintendo is trying to get its Nintendo DS handheld gaming device into junior high schools in Japan. The portable gaming console is already used for guiding tours in museums, galleries and aquariums in Japan, and the company now wants to see it used as an educational aid as well. It’s not entirely clear how the DS might be used to aid education, but with games such as Brain Age, it’s not hard to imagine companies coming up with the right material/games.
