This guy made a supersized 2-meter Nintendo Switch

April 11, 2021

It weighs almost 30 kilograms.

When people get bored they usually just play games or watch a movie or do some activity. For Michael Pick, he decided that his Nintendo Switch is too small – so he made a supersized one. 

In a viral video posted above, Pick managed to create a supersized Nintendo Switch by using some plywood, a 3D printer, and a 4K screen. Measuring almost 70 inches long, it is definitely way larger than the original Nintendo Switch released in 2017. The best part? It works.

Of course, a real Switch was used to make this XL version. Hidden inside the giant Joy Con controllers is the real handheld console, which is hooked up to a 4K screen. With a bit of hardware trickery, Pick managed to even make the controllers work just like the normal-sized version. This was done with servos that get triggered when the large buttons are pressed, so you can literally play Mario just like you did on the smaller Switch.

While you could think this was done as a hobby, Pick actually donated the supersized console to the Saint Jude’s Children’s Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee where it can be enjoyed by everyone. 

If Nintendo ever decides to make an extra-large Switch, maybe they can ask Pick for some help.
