Rumour Says Nintendo's Next Hardware is Built Around a "Free-Form Display"

By Gary Cutlack on at

The display-making division of Sharp is said to be preparing to supply Nintendo with screens for its next gaming hardware launch, with the Free-Form Display tech coming with a bendy bezel that can be formed into curves.

Sources quoted in a piece on the Japan Times make a quite outlandish claim about the shape of the machine too, with the site saying: "Nintendo is considering creating a hole at the centre of the display, making it doughnut-shaped."

So it could be like a steering wheel that's all screen. Ideal for Mario Kart 23. [Japan Times via Engadget]
