Tim Lindquist decided to forgo the usual summer activities and instead spent Summer 2017 working towards creating his own Nintendo Switch. Dubbed the “Nintimdo RP,” his completed handheld device can emulate games from over 50 consoles.

In a time-lapse video posted to YouTube, Lindquist crafts his own console; a creation that boasts a large LCD screen, built-in cooling system, rechargeable batteries, two USB ports and an HDMI port for television connection. The controllers aren’t removable and the system is a little thicker due to his custom part selection, but with the installed RetroPie emulator, the Nintimdo RP can play nearly any game of Lindquist’s choosing.

Check out the video above. If you’re looking to get your hands on an official Switch, Amazon just restocked.
