New patent from Nintendo showcases a hinged Joy-Con

Nintendo's gone unhinged!

Looking for a little more comfort out of your Joy-Con experience? It seems Nintendo is as well, as they've patented an idea for a hinged Joy-Con. This would let you flex a portion of the Joy-Con for more ergonomic use. The Joy-Con can even be flexed on the hinge when connected to your Switch, as the rail itself stays connected to the Switch, while the Joy-Con can flex separately. It's a pretty neat idea, and would most likely make for more comfortable play sessions. Let's hope this is a patent Nintendo actually decides to turn into a real product!
