The supplemental computing device that Nintendo has been after has now been patented. The device wouldn’t offer improved visuals for Nintendo’s next console the Nintendo NX but would allow it to access increased processing speed, network functions, and memory. You can see how it would work in the patent design below.
The supplemental computing device can communicate with others over the internet and by doing so allow the devices power to be boosted. At present it’s just a patent and many don’t see the light of day, but with NX rumours heating up this is sure to be of interest.
