In order not to overpay, the enthusiast assembled his own Nintendo Switch from the available spare parts

The Nintendo Switch game console is very popular all over the world, but due to the situation with the coronavirus, access to it has become limited. The product is still available in a number of stores, but many speculators decided to seize the moment and raised their prices. A user with the nickname sarbaaz37 was outraged by this state of affairs and argued with friends that he would create his own version of the console.

For his project, sarbaaz37 used many details that can be found in the public domain. The inventor recorded all stages of the assembly and posted it on the Imgur website - but the process is by no means for the faint of heart. It will take some pretty decent knowledge of electronics and a little luck.

The entire project took about a month, most of the time was spent looking for sellers with the cheapest parts and waiting for delivery from China. The total cost of the components was $ 199, which is even cheaper than the regular version of the Nintendo Switch without the seller's surcharge. The console feels good and you can play most of the games available on it, although the appearance creates a number of difficulties for young gamers.
