If there's one thing the the latest generation of video games is known for, it's enormous hardware. From the PS5's huge (and hugely memed) shape to Microsoft's fridge-esque Xbox Series X, today's consoles are anything but small. The exception is, of course, the Nintendo Switch – or it least it was until this ridiculous mod came along.

An engineer has built a fully working Nintendo Switch that's 650 per cent larger than the original. At 70 inches wide and 30 inches tall, it isn't exactly ideal for taking on the bus – and that's before factoring in the 29.5kg weight. But hey – it has a 4k display.
