Enlarge your Nintendo Switch screen with Orion

Thanks to the success of the fundraising launched in recent months on IndieGoGo, the US company UpSwitch is shipping the first units of Orion, a unique accessory for Switch that adds a large 11.6-inch “portable” screen to the hybrid console of Nintendo.

With its 11.6 inches diagonal, the Orion panel exceeds the touchscreen size of the basic Nintendo Switch model by 188%: the device works as a sort of “portable dock”, interfacing with the console via the connector in the compartment retractable on the back of the monitor.

There is no shortage of a 10,000 mAh battery, a 3.5 headphone connector, and two stereo speakers, in addition to USB Type-C and HDMI ports, a stand to place the monitor on a flat surface and the rails to attach and synchronize the two Joy-Con controllers.

Furthermore, the presence of the HDMI input is perfectly compatible with PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S or to be used as a second monitor for the laptop.
