While there’s very little doubt the Nintendo Switch is a wonderful console, It does have room for improvement. One major complaint has been the console’s Dock. Due to a lack of padding, it has a tendency to scratch the screen.
There have been attempts to rectify this in the recent past. From Build-a-dock kits from HDE to Kickstarter docks that were just reskinned from a product intended for Samsung Galaxy S8. But, this one has a unique approach.
Named the “Ojo” (stylized OJO), this projector aims to be the first ‘portable projector’ for the Switch, allowing users to game on a larger screen wherever they desire.
Made by the company YESOJO stationed in Shenzhen China, the unit is apparently still in testing. In fact, as of today, they’re testing the #4th prototype.
This prototype, according to the Twitter, is testing out artificial aging of the product. The designers of the unit also provide a constant stream of info about the unit, including a Prototype playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Given specs include the equivalent of a 30-120 inch screen with 200 lumens, stereo speakers, a battery to charge the Switch for up to 4 hours.
If you don’t want to use it as a Switch dock and instead as a normal projector, there are other options. It also features HDMI slots for you to plug in other items such as Laptops or other gaming devices.
As the device is still in the testing phases, a lot of information about the device is unknown. But according to the Twitter replies, there’s plan to fund mass-production via crowdfunding. Most likely KickStarter, as that has been used most prominently for these types of devices.
