Nintendo might be looking into a new Joy-Con design for its Switch system.
In a patent filed in February 2018 that recently surfaced, Nintendo outlines Joy-Cons that feature a bendable design.
Specifically, the upper part of the Joy-Cons are capable of folding downwards, which would let thumbs sort of rest naturally on the bend.
Presumably, this design is intended to be more ergonomic. However, no other details are provided in the patent.
Of course, this particular Joy-Con design may never see the light of day, given that it’s only a patent.
