Nintendo hacking, anyone?

I’m shopping for remote controls and thinking about a Logitech Harmony, but the new Nintendo DS Lite is pretty nifty. I’m wondering if some clever person will write an application to convert the DS into a dual-screen Wi-Fi remote, after it gets a browser this summer.

There are some cool programs for doing this with other Wi-Fi devices but those gadgets all cost more than twice as much as a DS.

The DS is about $130 at Amazon.com, where it’s ranked the No.1 seller in computer and video games.
