Obviously, there’s no detachable Joy-Con in this design, and it wouldn’t come with a standard dock either (although, the designer claims it can still be used with the dock–except I don’t actually believe his design would fit in a standard dock without the analog sticks getting in the way), but it’s got most of the basics covered.
I posted about this a while back. And now, with the Kickstarter coming to an end in a few days (less than two thousand dollars short of the target $250,000), it’s the perfect time for an update. Thankfully, it looks like they’re almost certain to get the money required in order to take the table into full production, which is great news. But, if you want to support the project, there’s no better time than now. I’ve added the Kickstarter video below, just so you can check it out quickly while you’re here:
And, sure, the final design isn’t quite a slick as the older original prototype—I love the curves on the original—but it’s still pretty sweet:

Regardless of the fact that this is just a random dude making something [unbelievably cool] in Minecraft in his spare time—purely for fun (even though it took him twenty four months to complete)—minds like this are at the core of all the greatest things mankind has ever done in the history of his short time on this planet.
