Panda3DS: Climbing the tree of 3DS emulation

Researching the Nintendo 3DS software and hardware stack while exploring new possibilities in emulating it, now with more pandas. Panda3DS is a new high-level Nintendo 3DS emulator for Windows, Linux, MacOS and Android, aiming to provide good compatibility, intuitive UX and explore new concepts in 3DS emulation. Despite only being a year old, it's already capable of playing many games and it's only going to get better!

In this talk, we'll be dissecting the Nintendo 3DS architecture on both the software and hardware level. Join us to discover the inner working of the 3DS, find out about the various efforts involved in emulating it and discuss various innovations that could be applied to 3DS emulation (Ubershaders, virtualization, scripting/hacking/debugging tools, and more).
