UpSwitch's Orion screen attaches to your Nintendo Switch for 188% more screen

Large screen option via UpSwitch's Orion add-on
When I want a bigger gaming space, I connect my Switch to it's dock and play on my TV.
At first glance, this looks like a large screen to which you connect your Joy Cons and begin playing. Nope. It is a larger screen, but it attaches to your Switch console. It's like putting a flat-screen TV in front of your boxy CRT for a wide screen experience. Yep, that's one way to do it.

The Orion from UpSwitch is an add-on screen that attaches to your Nintendo Switch console, providing 188% more space on an 11.6" screen. I love the Switch's versatility of going from a high-end portable game console to filing my large TV with grace and simplicity. When I'm in mobile mode, how large a screen do I really need?

The Joy Cons attach to the Orion screen and it provides HDMI & USB-C ports along with dual stereo speakers. If you're wondering about battery life, it seems to come with it's own "portable battery." All this is being crowd-funded on Indiegogo for about $250. Their campaign is ending soon, so it you need a bigger screen on-the-go, this may be a solution for you.
