TIME magazine has put out a list of the top ten gadgets of the past decade. As the article’s writer Patrick Lucas Austin describes it, the selection is based upon on how the particular gadget compels “a new way of thinking, a slow-moving paradigm shift set to change the way we approach the personal technology we interact with on a daily basis.” The list includes Tesla, Raspberry Pi, Microsoft’s Adaptive Controller… and Nintendo Switch!

Here’s some of what Austin had to say about Switch:

“Compared to the competition, it handily takes the crown as the most important video game console of the decade, with fans begging developers to bring their next title to the Switch. Its smartphone-inspired portability, paired with Nintendo’s ever-growing library of blockbuster, independent and vintage titles, makes the Switch feel like the culmination of Nintendo’s idea of what gaming should be.”

Indeed, insofar as gaming goes, it’s hard to beat what Nintendo has accomplished with Switch. It might not be quite as powerful as Xbox One or PlayStation 4, but the gap in processing power isn’t very large, and what it lacks in computing muscle it more than makes up for by being playable at home and on the go.
