Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Controllers (Odyssey-Red)
One of the most wonderful things about Nintendo is its insane creativity with its sleek controllers. From the original NES controller that served as the blueprint for almost every console controller that followed to the N64 which is the first controller to have an analog thumb-stick, down to the controller that introduced mankind to motion-controlled gaming, Wii.
The Birth of Nintendo Switch
But, Nintendo couldn’t get enough of taking their innovation to the next level. Four years after the release of Nintendo 3DS XL, the company announced their next portable console, which is the Nintendo Switch.
In 2017, the Nintendo Switch made its worldwide release and immediately shipped nearly three million in the first month of its launch. And in 2018, the console got a whopping 22.86 million units sold making it the fastest-selling console of all time in Japan and in the United States.

And then its main controller is not quite a gamepad. It’s not even a single gamepad, but two. And they are the Nintendo Switch “Joy-Con.” What?
Yes, just like Nintendo Switch and what it actually does, follow the same name pattern as to its accessories. The word “Joy-Con” is actually a portmanteau of two of the most popular word in gaming: joystick and controller, that explains what the “Joy-Con” does.

Joy-Con L contains directional buttons, a – button, top buttons designated as L and ZL, and a screenshot button, which enables the player to upload screenshots to social media. In an update released in October, 18th, 2017, the screenshot button is also able to record up to 30 seconds of gameplay in select games.

Games can support using the Joy-Con for pointing controls similar to the Wii Remote while detached without the need of a sensor bar. Joy-Con R contains an infrared depth tracking sensor, which can read objects and motions held in front of it; as an example of its functionality, Nintendo stated that the sensor could distinguish between the hand shapes of rock–paper–scissors. Joy-Con R also contains a near-field communication reader for use with Amiibo.
Did you know that?

With this, Nintendo visualized what benefits towards innovative design and gameplay could possibly a small controller do, which led to the development of an epic portable console (Nintendo Switch), controlled through these tiny yet powerful controllers (Joy-Cons).
