Supports for Nintendo Switch
The Switch is a console that stands out for its mobility, which allows us to play in the living room projecting the content on a TV or projector, or with its own screen. In the latter case, it is appreciated a support to tilt it and have it at eye level at different heights and also to be able to load it at the same time, something that is not possible per se by the location of its loading port.
