    Technically it could happen, but without physical buttons it'd be too hard, and most games wouldn't run at 100% speed.

    Laptops don't have touch screens. Tablets do, N8 does, laptops don't. You can't emulate a touch screen device without a touch screen.

    Problem is the 'DS's has TWO screens and the N8's has ONE screen' problem, other than that it MIGHT work. Maybe someone will make a bluetooth screen and gamepad just for this (I wish they would)

    Or the emulator just renders two screens on one. As in, if the resolution is 360x640, one screen is rendered at 0,359 to 0,319 (the top half of the screen), the second would be rendered at 0,359 to 320,639 (the bottom half). The first set of numbers being x1,x2 and the second set being y1,y2, of course. Naturally, this is all hypothetical. A DS emulator is possible, but don't expect it.

    Try a DS emulator on a computer, that's exactly what it does.

    I don't think displaying two screens is the problem here. Unlike N900 the N8 lack hardware buttons and resistive touchscreen (NDS has one). Here is one example how two screens could be displayed.
