The Fak­ing Of… Nin­tendo NX­fake

With Nin­tendo’s NX due this year but still un­seen, In­ter­net wags and Pho­to­shop fans have much to keep them oc­cu­pied. None will go to the lengths Frank Sandqvist did with his NX con­troller fake, which used a Pho­to­shop mockup of a con­troller with built-in screen that most on­look­ers saw through – or hoped they did. Here, Sandqvist shows a step-bystep break­down of how he used a 3D printer, laser-cut­ting tool and spray­paint to mock up a de­vice one Nin­tendo fan­site called ‘ter­ri­fy­ing’. A fas­ci­nat­ing look be­hind the scenes of a very mod­ern hoax.
