The Duel Disk is based on an ancient Egyptian artifact called a DiaDhank, a golden device worn similarly to the Duel Disk that uses the user's Ba (life force) to summon Ka (spirit monsters) and control them. Unlike the Duel Disk, the DiaDhank can only control up to three monsters at once. In place of the Life Point counter is the Eye of Wadjet, which contains a glowing yellow meter that measures the user's Ka. It is heavily implied only Millenium Item bearers can use a DiaDhank.
The design of the second Duel Disk suggests that Seto Kaiba designed it based on memories from his past life as Priest Seto, who used the Millenium Rod. The Academy Duel Disk also seems to take elements from the DiaDhank, as its shape when in standby mode looks like the blades on the DiaDhank. Yubel's dueling arm looks like a demonic version of the ancient device, as well.
Duel Disk 1
During the Duelist Kingdom arc, Seto Kaiba developed the first generation duel disk prototypes as a means of countering Pegasus' mind reading techniques. Seto gambled that Pegasus needed face to face contact for his mind reading to work so as a feature of the disks, holographic projections of the cards obstruct the duelists from seeing each other.
This duel disk was physically and functionally different than the ones that would follow. Where the others are a single piece construct which houses the deck, graveyard, life point counter and cards in play, The first Duel Disk system had two components joined by a retractable cable, The wrist component houses the deck and life point counter, and the actual disk component holds 5 cards. Users would load the cards as explained later into the disk and throw it yo yo style, causing hologram to be projected from it.
The duel disk system also changed the rules of Duel Monsters. They followed Duelist Kingdom rules except for the following changes:
Both players draw cards until they have 5 in their "hand". If they have 5 then can draw no more.
One monster card is placed on the "Main card stage", the centre place on the disk. This can be in Attack or Defence position.
The other 4 cards are placed face down into the other places, the "Sub card stage".
The players can only attack with the monster in the main card stage, providing it is in attack position first. It can attack the opponent's main card stage monster or one of the sub stage cards.
Any monsters in the sub card stage are considered to be in attack position, and damage calculation is done accordingly. Spell and Trap cards are destroyed with no calculation done.
The players may shuffle their sub card stages at their discretion.
An early variation of this system is used in Toei's Yu-Gi-Oh! movie.
Duel Disk 2
Prior to the Battle City Tournament, KaibaCorp developed the second generation Duel Disk, the first one to be released to the public. Issued to participants of Battle City, this Disk played the game according to the new revisions (which make it closer to the real world version.) Unlike the previous Duel Disk, it did not need to be thrown. (In the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime, sealers flew out of the Duel Disk to the sides of the dueling area. These disappeared in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX.) When in use, it resembled an arm blade. Monsters that are in play are placed on the five slots on the blade either in Attack or Defense position. Directly underneath each Monster slot is another slot for Spell and Trap Cards. If a Duelist were to activate a Set card, they would activate a button on the round portion of the disk. Another slot can open on the front end of the disk that is used for the Field Spell Card. The center of the Disk includes the Deck and Graveyard slot and Life Point counter. The bottom part of the disk (the part that goes around an user's arm) also contains a retractable cable that could be attached to duel arena systems. Ever since their introduction, almost all duels were conducted with these, or with the later introduced Chaos Duel Disk.

|Chaos Duel Disk |
The Chaos Duel Disk is a Duel Disk designed for the members of the organization called Doma in the Waking the Dragons saga. (Doma was unnamed in the english dub.) Functionwise it is identical to the Battle City duel disks except that except for projecting holograms of monsters, it appears to cause the monsters to physically manifest. It looks different to the Battle City disk in that it resembles a scythed blade. It is believed to be modeled after the scythes on the armour of the Orichalcos Soldiers
Academy Duel Disk
A streamlined version of the second Duel Disk. This is the standard Duel Disk issued to students of the various Duel Academies established by Seto Kaiba in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX series. Aside from the obligatory alternate folding feature, and a cosmetic refit, this Disk functions identically to the second Duel Disk. A new set of Academy Duel Disks are coming out, with colors of red, yellow and blue reflecting the dorm colors of the Academy. In season four, the duelists are using these new duel disks.
Academy Duel Disk V2
An updated version of the Academy Duel Disk which now has the color of the user's respective dorm on it.
One of the biggest Duel Disks in Yu-Gi-Oh GX. It is used by both Vellian Crowler and Napoleon.
Yubel's Duel Disk I
An Academy Duel Disk with a tray shaped like a bat wing and a graveyard like a sharp-oothed mouth (used by Marcel when under Yubel's control and by Yubel herself). When Yubel activates it, it grows from her arm.
Axel Brodie's Disk
A Duel Disk shaped like a gun that can actually shoot.
Professor Viper's Disk
A very heavy Duel Disk that works like a fold-out table. One of the biggest Duel Disks in Yu-Gi-Oh GX.

Adrian Gecko's Disk
Adrian's Disk appears to simply be a modified Academy Disk with green trim.

Gravekeeper's Chief's Disk
Admiral's Disk is studded with jewels and other treasures of the sea. It looks exactly the same as the Jewel Disk
Alien of Light's Disk
The Alien's Disk seems to be perpetually active, as seen when he was wearing it while exiting the ship. Semicircular, this Disk is rounder than most others. As the Alien is from another dimension, it is unlikely that this device is a Duel Disk at all, but rather an instrument from the Light of Destruction's world that serves the same function.
The Rock Spirit's Disk
Masked Knight's Duel Disk
