In 2005, Neal Nueller attempted a climb of Mount Everest. As he ascended and air pressures decreased, many electronics on his person - including several laptops and MP3 players, among other things - broke as a result, but his DS stood strong, and was even playable at the top of the mountain.
In the Nintendo DSi Sound application, if you record a sound, then hover the cursor over it for a few seconds, the sound bytes will be remixed and heard into a Super Mario Bros. overworld theme.
Nintendo DS prototypes were designed specifically for durability - during development, for example, no prototype was allowed that could not withstand ten 1.5-meter (~5 feet) drops onto concrete consecutively without a loss of function.
Many people mistake "DS" being an abbreviation for "Dual Screen" or some variant thereof. In reality, Nintendo intended it to stand for "Developer's System".
