In this project, we’ll show you how to DIY your own Portable Projector for the Nintendo Switch!
We designed and 3D printed a custom dock that holds an off-the-shelf PICO projector. This of course allows you to project gameplay from the switch to just about any surface!
Proof of Concept
We like to think of this as more of a prototype and proof of concept. We hope this inspires the DIY community to take a stab at making their own Mods for the Nintendo switch.
We had a lot of fun during the tearing down and hope it serves as a future reference for anyone looking to do something similar.
Although the Nintendo Switch is already portable, using a projector instead of a TV is a novel idea in those situations where it makes sense. Compared to the official dock from Nintendo, our 3D printed version is much slimmer and exposes the electronics showcasing the DIY goodness.
