Ever wanted to stick some of your old Nintendo Famicom cartridges into your portable gaming console? No? Neither have we, actually. But surely there are some out there who would, and for them there's the "Cyber Famireta Lite" (name translated by Google) Nintendo DS Lite add-on from Japanese company CyberGadget.

In addition to letting you plug in Famicom games, this contraption even has a few extras. On its back is a TV-out jack so you can play those titles on your spanking new LCD TV--8-bit games on a HD panel, a match made in retro geek heaven.

There's no price yet, but it will be available in early December. So ask a mate in Japan to look out for it if you want to fire up that old copy of Twin Bee.
