Someone made a playable, TV-sized Nintendo Switch



The Nintendo Switch is already a great system, but a YouTuber named Michael Pick decided to make it even bigger (via Polygon). The result is a device that is 650 percent larger than Nintendo’s portable hybrid. Pick claims to be the world’s largest fully functioning Nintendo Switch. And we believe in him. It comes in at 30 inches high and 70 inches wide, making it impossible to touch two buttons on opposite sides of each other without stretching as far as you can. Oh, and the whole thing weighs 65 pounds.

The device you see is actually a shell for a 4K LED TV and the system itself. The 3D-printed buttons and joysticks on the front are connected to separate Joy-cons through a series of servos. When you press one of the buttons on the switch face, it activates the corresponding input on the current Joy-con. The nice thing about the design is that Pick did not have to open the controls to make everything work. It is also possible to remove the 3D-printed fasteners that hold them in place, so there was no need to sacrifice any switch components.

At this point, you̵

7;re probably wondering why Pick set out to transform a portable system like the Nintendo Switch into something so inconvenient. I mean, watch him try to play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. To open the video, Picks says his goal was to make a switch that was “harder to lose,” but he ends the clip by donating his creation to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. I do not know about you, but the boy in me loves this idea, and it is easy to imagine that it gives a lot of joy and happiness to someone when they need it most.
