Nintendo's fan switch concept lets you charge and dock on the go

The Nintendo Switch is feeling unstoppable at the moment, with new games promised, new hardware to be released and the general feeling among consumers that the console is fun, affordable and portable.

Here's Sid one designer Olivier Raymond to come up with a concept version of the Nintendo Switch he hopes Nintendo will consider a third iteration of the console if it ever makes it this far.

The dubbed Switch Up Console is a marriage between the original console launched in 2017 and the newly announced Switch Lite expected in September.

It takes Lite's new big screen and original docking system and integrates them together to let you play your favorite Nintendo games on the go and still connect to your TV.

The new backpack accessory - Raymond calls the Smart Dock - fits into the controller's negative space, integrating with it easily.

It works as an extra battery pack for the console and also comes with HDMI and USB ports, allowing you to connect it to your TV or even a projector. The catch, though, in Raymond's design, is that as lightweight as the move to a larger screen means you can't separate the Joy-Con controllers.

Of course, when you dream, you can increase the device's capabilities too, and Raymond's concept switch console with 1080p resolution, an Nvidia quad-core Cortex-A72 processor, 6GB of RAM for fast game loading and 64GB of memory with an SD card slot for expansion farther.

Monreale Raymond is not affiliated with Nintendo, but previous work included a stint at Mercedes-Benz and a six-month internship at FA Porsche's studio.

Here's hoping Nintendo takes their ideas and we're seeing solid footing in a future version of the Switch.
