Fan customizes 65 inch TV as a giant Nintendo Switch

Just when you think you’ve seen it all on the internet, creative and artistic individuals continue to delight and surprise. This time, the creation is a giant Nintendo Switch — well, sort of. A Nintendo fan by the name of Suprman9 has created a brilliant centerpiece for a game room. With a bit of ingenuity and a plan, Suprman9 created and affixed a pair of massive Joy-Con to a 65″ television to turn it into a giant Switch.

Of the idea, Suprman9 shared on a personal blog that creating a frame for the game room TV was always the goal. In terms of ideas for the frame, several ideas were kicked around first.

“My initial idea was to create the frame to look like a Game Boy Color (my first game system). I knew it would probably need to be free standing, and I thought it would be cool to have a shelf at the bottom under the screen. Unfortunately, I realized that a Game Boy Color would not work due to the shape of the screen.” Suprman9 continued, “Next I landed on a Nintendo 3DS. The shape of the screen was more of a rectangle and still had the ability to be free standing. I even considered putting an additional screen at the bottom. Unfortunately, I realized the design of the 3DS was going to be difficult.”

Eventually, however, the idea formed that brought this final product to fruition. “Finally, the idea of a Nintendo Switch hit me. The Switch was the perfect design because the center console looks like a miniature TV.” Suprman9 went on to share the process for how the mega-Switch was constructed.

This is mod is one for the books. If you happen to be in the market for a Nintendo Switch TV after seeing this puppy, check out Suprman9’s blog for the details on how to make it a reality.
