If you’ve been dying to get your hands on the Nintendo Switch’s new Joy-Con controllers or you missed out on the kiosk that had them on display during the January 12th, there’s a really awesome 3D fabrication of the left and right Joy-Con controllers so you can see every single inch of what they’re like, and check out the ports, buttons, straps, and designs.
Modeler Jan Neves put the 3D fab together, mirroring it nearly point for point to the real life designs of the Joy-Con controllers. The model managed to get the addition of the Nintendo Switch sub on Reddit, where they’ve been salivating over the controllers, desperately latching onto anything they can as they eat up morsels of information leading up to the March 3rd, 2017 release of the Nintendo Switch console.
You can check out the 3D fabrication of the Joy-Con controllers with the embed below from Sketchfab.
The embed will let you rotate around the model by holding down the left mouse button and swiveling the mouse around, or pan left and right or up and down by holding down the right mouse button and moving the mouse around.
You can zoom in and zoom out of the model using the mouse scroll wheel. If the embed doesn’t work or you’re using a browser that doesn’t support it, there are some images below giving a nice, detailed look at each of the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers.
The Joy-Con controllers are an interesting breed of devices. They have advanced rumble, motion controls such as accelerometers and gyroscopes, along with the ability to work in tandem as separate split-screen controls for player 1 and player 2 when playing in the portable mode.
Nintendo has a very cool little device on their hands with the Nintendo Switch and we’ll see if they can knock it out of the park come March 3rd. In the meantime you can enjoy checking out the 3D fabs of the left and right Joy-Con, featuring the NFC reader, the IR port, the buttons, the analogs, the straps and the triggers.
