Have everyone enjoyed the Ching Ming holiday? Don’t miss it too much if you haven’t enjoyed it yet, after all, the May Day holiday is beckoning to us.

To play, you have to have a good time. If you can play some new tricks, it would be even better.

No, an American guy has set his sights on your Switch.

However, this is not a new game developed, but an update to the size of the Switch.

Everyone who owns the Switch knows that the Switch itself is the size of it, and it can be played with both hands, but it often happens that you don’t know where you left it. If it is bigger, it may not be easy to find it.

What this American brother did is to enlarge the screen of the Switch itself by 650%. This giant Switch is 30 inches long, 70 inches wide, weighs 65 pounds, and supports 4K HD video.

But it’s too big and it’s a bit inconvenient. If you want to hold down two buttons at the same time, you have to do a set of stretching exercises.

For example:

As you can see, every button can work. This should be the largest Switch in the world!

Many netizens also expressed their shock at this. Some people left a message: “I want to play the Legend of Zelda too much on this.”

Some netizens even gave a brand new gameplay: “The biggest feature may be collaborative operation, one on the left and one on the right.”

Some netizens said: “Switch players should like this.”

The video of my brother is as follows, if you are interested, just poke it:

Let’s take a look at how the world’s largest Switch is made

This time, we reversed the order and started after the production was completed.

At the end of the day’s game, let us take apart the giant controller next to it. At the top is a Joy-Con controller, which is mounted on a base made of 3D printing.

This base allows you to attach a servo system to the top of the controller without damaging anything.

This is also easy to disassemble, just loosen the screws, and the Joy-Con can be removed from the base.

Below is the open source electronic prototype platform Arduino. This microprocessor can guide the operation and execution of the servo system.

When the signal is input from the front dashboard, it can tell each servo system which button of the Joy-Con should be pressed.

Below is the real Switch body that is fixed.

The giant Joy-Con is made by 3D printing, and then use a rubber band to place the giant joystick in the middle of the real joystick, and you can operate it.

Not only can you directly operate this super-large Switch, but you can also connect to the handle. In short, it has everything on the Switch, and it can zoom in hundreds of times.”Fragrant” taste.

According to the video, this little brother did not make this Switch for his own entertainment, but to donate it to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital).

Perhaps in the future, children will come up with more peculiar ways to play.

It may not be the cheapest, but it is also a very cost-effective way to make Switch

Speaking of Switch, I think everyone still remembers “Animal Crossing Friends Club” which was popular last year.

In April last year, as soon as “Animal Crossing Friends Club” was launched, it triggered a switch purchase boom around the world, eBay, Amazon and other e-commerce companies have no stock, and offline stores even rely on lottery to complete delivery .

If you can’t buy it, it’s better to make one yourself.

So a foreigner named Brennen Johnston DIY a Switch by himself using old parts, the cost is only 199 US dollars.

This is the required parts list, you can check it yourself:

In the tutorial, Johnston also wrote very detailed. For example, in the digital code in the picture below, the console speaker needs to be replaced at position 5, that is, the speaker is placed in the speaker-shaped hole with the wire facing the middle; the battery at position 13 needs to be replaced.

Not only that, but he will also give some practical suggestions. For example, for the Nintendo Switch HAC-001 CPU cooler, the glue on the chip should be cleaned first, and a medium-level thermal grease should be applied to improve the heat dissipation efficiency.

He also posted the whole process on Imgur. Please check the specific process by yourself:

However, Digest bacteria should be reminded in advance. As Johnston himself said, the assembly process requires you to gather all the parts of the Switch, which is very time-consuming and labor-intensive, and everyone who is eager to try should be mentally prepared.

treasure blogger Michael Pick

This little brother who made the giant Switch is named Michael Pick. He clicked on his YouTube homepage and found that he was still a hidden treasure blogger.

YouTube homepage link:

According to LinkedIn information, Pick graduated from Tennessee Technical University with a major in computer science with a minor in mathematics.

After graduation, he was mainly responsible for testing various bugs of SubSkillsNet(submarine software simulator) in the Flight Department of the Naval Air Combat Center.

In 2015, as CEO, he established SmartChutes(SkyFallX), designed the circuit and onboard flight controller, SkyFallX is an autonomous parachute recovery system for UAV/UAV.

Subsequently, Pick worked as a software engineer in Higher Echelon, Inc. and Software Engineer.

With such experience and knowledge, it is no wonder that he has the brain and ability to develop a giant Switch. Digest bacteria can only express his admiration.
