    When Switch Kiosk's Crash you can clearly see its being powered by Raspberry Pi

    All gaming companies love to use Kiosk displays to show off their new gaming machines before they launch, but when it comes to the brand-new Nintendo Switch one, it has been discovered it has an Raspberry Pi device under the hood powering the demo reels & videos.

    It has now been confirmed by multiple sources that indeed the little screen in the corner of the Kiosk, that allows you to select various Switch game teaser trailers, plus watch video promotion reels from Nintendo in the hopes you will decide to purchase an Switch console, is indeed powered by the little $25 homebrew popular computing device called the Raspberry Pi.

    It seems Nintendo has decided that it was good enough for them to use on their Kiosk units to interact with their customers to give them a Switch feeling, without infact using their own hardware to display the keyed up demos in the stores for people to watch! :)
