What is a Nintendo e reader?

The Nintendo E-Reader was a peripheral for the Game Boy Advance

that allowed cards to be swiped through to read data. The cards

could hold games (i.e. Donkey Kong) or other information (i.e.

unlockables for games such as Animal Crossing). The E-Reader cards

were standard playing/trading-card size, and the data was held on a

pattern of small dots on the bottom of the card. Due to its

bulkiness and the limited amount of data one card could hold,

Nintendo silently let the E-Reader die.
