An enthusiast has assembled his own Nintendo Switch from available spare parts

Nintendo Switch is very popular around the world, but due to the coronavirus situation, access to it has become restricted. It's still available in a number of stores, but many speculators decided to seize the moment and raised 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 its project, the sarbaaz37 used many details which can be found in the free access. All stages of the assembly were fixed by the inventor and uploaded to the Imgur website.

The whole project took about a month, most of the time went in search of sellers with the cheapest parts and waiting for delivery from China. The total cost of the components was $199, which was even cheaper than the regular Nintendo Switch version without a surcharge from the seller. The console feels pretty good and you can play most of the games available, though its appearance makes it a challenge for young gamers.
