YouTuber and mechanical engineer Michael Pick developed the largest Nintendo Switch console in the world, with a fully functional joy-cons and 4K screen.

In the video in which he presents the feat, Michael Pick jokes that he made the giant console to solve a problem he has with his original hybrid and portable console: it can be easily lost. With that in mind, he built his own version of the device, which has a 4K resolution screen and a huge design – it’s 30 inches high and 70 inches wide (about 0.7x 1.7 meters).

In the presentation of the product, which was released on his YouTube channel, the engineer shows how everything works perfectly well: all the keys of the two joy-cons, including the upper triggers have their perfect functions and he even makes a demonstration with Mario Kart and Fortnite, which recently received some graphical improvements to the original console. In addition, it is still possible to use an external controller, such as a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, to facilitate gaming.

Many may wonder how it would be possible to play on a console of this size and some comments on the YouTube post give some interesting tips for this, such as playing as a team – while one person controls the directions, another may give more commands on the other side of the screen.

In the publication, Pick also shows how he achieved this feat and, although it seems complicated, it was very simple for those who understand the subject: he used real joy-cons inside the giants and each of his functions are controlled by wires connected to the big buttons which, in turn, were made with a 3D printer.

When he finished explaining how he developed the console, Michael Pick explains his real intention with the project: the biggest Nintendo Switch in the world was donated to Saint Jude Children’s Hospital.
