The Switch dock is a technical marvel. You can pop your screen into it after playing games remotely and wherever you left off, bam, it’s right there on the television screen. If you’re bored with the official design, modders have been doing some amazing work converting old consoles into docks. In fact, the gaming fan who created the NES dock has now crafted a SNES variant.

Ah, the gray SNES box takes me back to my childhood

The modder, who goes by the Reddit moniker IMOKRUOK, bought a busted SNES through eBay for the sole purpose of creating Frankenstein’s monster. After spending over $100 on tools and equipment, IMOKRUOK completed the passion project after about 40 hours. As you can see above, the device houses Joy-Con and can even pop the Switch screen up a little with its Eject button.

If you want to see a ton of photos of the experiment in detail, head on over to Imgur. Here are a few of my faves:


The original condition of the system. It looks exactly like my own SNES

Enthusiasts, what are your thoughts on the SNES dock? Are any of you handy enough to make the next converter, which should absolutely use a Nintendo 64? Tell us in the comments below!
