In Taiwan, companies have made Nintendo Switch consoles complete with Game Carts and Joy-Con out of paper. You wouldn’t believe how much they cost – USD75. That’s 25% the cost of the real thing!
Let’s take a closer look at what makes this paper Switch unique. The paper Switch comes with a working kickstand…
..a cartridge slot to put your games in…
..and the Joy-Con are fully detachable.
You might be thinking the quality and effort are the reason why the paper Switch is so expensive. Be prepared to be surprised by the real reason.
In East Asia, there’s a common practice called burning “spirit money” which usually happens on tomb-sweeping day (April 4). It’s believed by burning spirit money, deceased relatives or friends could use them in the afterlife.
As time progressed, not only were people burning spirit money, but even paper houses, paper smartphones, and paper electronic devices. They aren’t cheap either.
