Michael Pick, “Casual Engineer” who builds curiosity on YouTube, had a small problem with the Nintendo Switch: “It’s very easy to lose,” he says. So he fixed it in a way. In a big road.
At more than six times the size of a real Nintendo switch, here is the world’s largest Nintendo switch, and yes, all the buttons and joysticks work. You can watch Pick play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in, uh, “portable” mode – notice how he covers the A button to accelerate with his forearm while using his whole hand to steer with the humongous Joy-Con.
Of course, what̵
The console is 30 inches high and 70 inches wide and weighs 65 pounds. Don’t worry, it can be played with a (non-giant) Nintendo Switch Pro controller, which Pick uses to send Fortnite plays Manwell65, making him the first to be eliminated in that game (or something) via the Giant Nintendo Switch.
Not that Pick takes this on the bus to play Fortnite It’s a gift to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, which has a subsidiary in Huntsville, Alabama, where Pick is a space software engineer. Kids will probably use the Pro controller when they want to play, but surely everyone who sees it will crack all the buttons just to see how it is. I would.
