The Touch Screen and Stylus

The Nintendo DS is famous for being the only video game console that uses Touchscreen technology to play its games (though this is usually optional). Although it is possible to use a finger to manipulate the touchscreen, it comes with a DS stylus, a pen-like object used to tap on small buttons that large fingers might miss.
