Check out the world’s biggest operating Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch’s mix of excellent games and portability has led to it being the world’s best-selling console in recent years. But, does enlarging it by 650 percent make it less appealing? Obviously, indeed. Nonetheless, space tech developer Michael Pick welcomed the task of constructing the world’s biggest Turn and contributing the completed product to a children’s hospital.

Pick documented the construction of the 65-pound, 70″ x 30″ Switch on his YouTube page. He built it out of wood, 3D-printed pieces, and an actual Switch console concealed inside.

The Mega Switch’s controls work just like the real thing. A Joy-Con controller is hidden under the wood, registering button presses with servos and an Arduino microcontroller. Pick also used rubber bands to secure the 3D-printed joysticks to the Jot-Con sticks.

Wrestling with buttons designed for giants isn’t a fun way to play video games. Pick’s machine, luckily, supports both normal Joy-Cons and external Pro controllers, enabling him to play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Fortnite on the 4K screen.

Pick’s project was all for a greater cause: he donated the big Move to Vanderbilt’s Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital.

“The hospital told me they intend to install the Giant Switch in one of the play rooms for the kids to play games on. They’ll most likely be using Joy-Cons/pro controllers, so using the Switch to play games on won’t be a full-body workout (like what you see in my video! haha),” he told IGN.

Pick usually shrinks technology rather than making it bigger. He’s previously made the “world’s smallest” MacBook Pro, iMac, and Gaming PC (above).

More news of a Switch successor, likely named a Switch Pro, Switch 2, or Super Switch, surfaced last month. It is said to have Nvidia DLSS, an OLED screen, and a $399 price tag.
