The Nintendo Switch certainly isn’t the first gaming tablet, but is it directly riffing on others’ ideas? Gamevice thinks so. The accessory maker is suing Nintendo for allegedly violating a patent for concepts used in the Wikipad, its gaming-oriented Android slate, as well as its namesake add-on controllers for phones and tablets. According to the suit, the Switch and its removable Joy-Con controllers are too close to Gamevice’s vision of a combination of detachable game controller and a device with a “flexible bridge section.” Not surprisingly, the lawsuit calls for both damages and a ban on Switch sales.

    "Humans have great technology that could improve their lives. However, humans always fuck up it's implementation through bad management, bad design, rushed releases, no testing, no resources, corruption and just not giving a fuck about anything. In turn, humans remain frustrated, in a life unimproved. Stupid humans."
