CHAT-PAK lets 3DS gamers talk smack from miles away

chatpakThe Nintendo 3DS is a great handheld for wirelessly playing games together with friends no matter where anyone is, but one of the system’s greatest shortcomings is a lack of dedicated voice chat options. The CHAT-PAK fixes that in a rather simple fashion, by attaching a two-way FRS/GMRS radio to the system in a plastic protective case. This allows players to communicate with each other from a distance of up to four miles, making it ideal for road trips or neighborhood contests. The device even includes a ping feature with up to ten unique alerts, letting users know if someone nearby wants to chat. The CHAT-PAK will be done in August for those that pledge $29.
