A mechanical engineer named Michael Pick built a Nintendo Switch giant, donating the same to a local children’s hospital. The console measures 70 by 30 inches, and weighs almost 30 kg.
The giant console is estimated to be 650% larger than a normal switch, and its creation was shared in a video on Youtube this past weekend.
“The kids loved it! Honestly, the best part of this construction. I really like the Nintendo Switch. It’s small, it’s portable… but it’s very easy to lose, and for me that was a problem ”, he said, Reddit. “So, I decided to fix this by doing something a little bigger and a little harder to lose”, completed.

As shown in the video, the wooden joy-cons buttons work, including shoulder buttons and joysticks, but players can also use external controllers to play. The engineer showed that he incorporated chargers into the console’s mounts, so they don’t run out of battery inside the giant box.
For those who don’t know, the Switch sold almost 80 million consoles worldwide, on December 31, 2020. The information is from Nintendo itself, in which the president said that the successor to Switch “will need to offer a new experience”. What is next?
