The Faking Of… Nintendo NX www.bit.ly/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.
