The 3DS Gets Hulu Plus and 3D Video Recording

Nintendo's new handheld device gets another streaming source and the long awaited ability to record 3D video.

When the 3DS first launched, the twin cameras on the device got people excited for the possibilities of 3D photos and 3D video. Sadly, only still shots were available at launch, leaving wannabe 3D videographers wanting.

The latest update to the 3DS allows you to take video clips of up to 10 minutes long. It's not much, but it's enough to get a little taste of the possibilities of 3D shooting. Maybe even give you a little inspiration to pick up a proper 3D video camera and get to work.

Nintendo's handheld also got Hulu Plus today, expanding its streaming service options. It's only a Wi-Fi device, which means you're stuck to places where a network is available, but it's a nice option for Hulu subscribers.
