Can a Switch survive after a drop from 1,000 feet?



This is probably the dumbest thing you’ll watch all day, but it’s well edited and less than four minutes long.

TheUnlockRiver YouTube channel decided to fly a Switch up 1,000 feet attached to a drone, then let it drop (skip to two minutes in if you want the actual drop). Surprisingly it actually works after impact, but a hilariously flimsy Joy-Con was demolished.

A lot of you out there are probably watching this Switch get wrecked by a popular YouTuber and going “I can’t even find one.” I feel your pain. Vicariously, of course, as I pre-ordered a Switch the minute it went up.
