You may judge the name, but this is one of my best creations(second to Rice in a Bowl).
Like I said in my previous post, it works in both Controller and Handheld mode, as seen in the pictures, and it has adaptable grips that make it comfy to hold. The comparison to other game controllers show where I got some of my inspiration, like why I angled the controllers instead of making it vertical, and why I added comfort grips behind the controllers.
In handheld mode, the Joycons(controllers) connect using the same grip system and keep the angled controller form while being extremely comfy to hold.
I designed a Modular Ergonomic Switch Grip. It wasn't printed yet, so this is all I had. The modular switch grip works in 2 ways, attached to the console and in controller mode. The grip portion of the design is made to be used on both the switch and the controller mode so it's fully modular and infinitely adaptable. There are 2 other pieces to the design, I call them Links. The first one (middle in the picture) is made to connect the two controllers for "controller mode" and the wide link is to stabilize the controllers and prevent them from falling out in handheld mode.
I made the Grips on the attachment to fit on both controller and handheld mode to both save material(it takes a lot less to print) and because having to connect a bunch of things is less convenient than connecting just a few modules.
I made the controllers angled because the buttons and the joystick lower down on the controllers were hard to press in its normal vertical position.
Reason why I made it modular is because that's what the switch is all about and I wasn't gonna let the modularity go away
The Nintendo Switch is a hybrid gaming device that can be docked into a dock to output to a TV or used in handheld mode. The problem I had with handheld mode was that it was a little uncomfortable to hold. The vertical controls made it harder to hold it and to press the lower buttons so I thought of tilting the controllers by making an adapter. My first 2 prototypes weren't very thought out because wider the device gets it's better to tilt the controllers out towards the top and in towards the bottom and vice versa. My next versions are gonna build off of the one on the left and add handles and have a way to keep the attachments from sliding out.
