But your five foot drop is the one that’s going to break it.

Watch on YouTube

The Nintendo Switch is a very popular console that a lot people still can’t find at stores. It’s also a hybrid, offering both on-the-go play and traditional home consoles experiences.

In this video from YouTube channel UnlockRiver, we get to see the Switch dropped from a 1,000 foot height, that’s just over 300 meters. To do this, they attach the console to a drone, and release at 1,000 feet.

The Switch actually survives the drop, despite it looking it was torn into many pieces. It’s not in a great shape, and one of the Joy-Cons is broken, but it works.
