Arduino helps control the world’s largest Nintendo Switch

Arduino helps control the world’s largest Nintendo Switch

from arduino.cc

Do you enjoy playing your Nintendo Switch, but get tired of losing it due to its small size? Michael Pick may have just the answer with his massive version of the console — which measures in at 70″ x 30″ — and features a 4K display and functional Joy-Con controllers.



The frame is constructed out of wood, with 3D-printed buttons and joysticks. Inside of one of the giganto Joy-Cons is an actual Nintendo Switch for running games, while a Joy-Con is used for input. The large outer joystick is hooked up to it mechanically and the outer buttons are connected to an Arduino.

In response to external button presses, the Arduino activates servos that physically push the controller’s buttons, interfacing with the system and keeping the Nintendo hardware intact.

Making it all the better, Pick donated the finished product to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital!

And if you're interested in learning about Arduino, PMD Way can help you with a wide range of support Arduino starter kits for beginners and interested hobbyists.
