    Nintendo Switch(NS) is the No.1 The Top 10 Gadgets of 2017.

Precisely Nintendo Switch is not a just a general design, It is so unique that you can not find the 2nd same design game console in this world.
It carries Nintendo’s future directions.

For about as long as game consoles have existed, players have had to choose between gaming in front of a TV or holding a tiny screen in their hands while out and about. Not so with the Nintendo Switch, the first console that’s truly designed for both at-home and on-the-go entertainment. The Switch consists of a tablet with a 6.2-inch screen with slots for attaching Nintendo’s Joy-Con controllers on either side, turning it into a handheld video game machine. But when you’re at home, you can slide the slate into a dock that hooks up to your TV and play it like a traditional console. That “play anywhere, anytime” approach, combined with a stellar games roster, from the recently launched Super Mario Odyssey to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, makes the Switch a true knockout.

Obviously, the main innovation of NS is the integration of the display, so that players can play the game without being in front of the TV.
That is a compact design, that’s see how it compact.

Compact design saves player’s many works on preparing gaming. They can play it whenever and wherever.

Will there be more of the same compact design in the future, we don’t know yet but Nintendo breaks with the traditions, which makes it alive when compete with stronger competitors Sony(Playstation) and Microsoft(Xbox).
