Has anyone seen a private mod of a Nintendo DS so it displays on two TV screens/monitors like they have at the game shows etc? You can play and see everything on the DS, but the video signal is also fed to a couple screens above you so spectators can see what you're doing.

No, but what would be cool is picking up a touchscreen CRT off eBay for cheap and playing some jumbo sized Trauma Center.

No worse than the GBA player on the GameCube, I'm sure.

There is also this, albeit only for the top screen:

Looks pretty ugly if you ask me.

they use it for the demos at shows like e3, and they have it in the nintendo world store too i think. but you wouldn't use the monitor as the touch screen, since you still play on the ds.

yeah definately pretty ugly. there must be a better solution if you're willing to bust open your DS and splice some wires.

Looks like you have to be a Nintendo dev to get your hands on one.

I could see something like this working for multiplayer games (ex: MP Hunters) to make it easier on your neck. Judging by the pics in that link that gofishn posted, it's really dark.
