Remember the ‘exploded’ Game Boy consoles we showed you a while back? Well, the company behind them, GRID Studio, is back with a more up-to-date example: Nintendo Switch Joy-Con.

While we’d argue that getting Nintendo to repair your Joy-Con is a more sensible course of action when they finally succumb to Joy-Con Drift, there is something rather appealing about having them framed in this fashion.

As with other GRID products, care has been taken to disassemble the controller and show off all of the internal parts; it’s remarkable how simple the innards of the Joy-Con actually are.

The catch for most people is likely to be the cost; at £170, this isn’t cheap – but hey, at least it can serve as an ice-breaker at your next dinner party.
