If you play the Switch a lot you may have experienced the frustration of Joy Con drift. These are annoying ghost movements where your character or cursor moves all by itself; ie drifts constantly to one direction. Now there might be a simple fix using a 3D printed shim or just a piece of cardboard! Via Kotaku:
Okay, but what is this killer effective method that has overcome years of Nintendo ineptitude? Turns out, it’s a small piece of cardboard. You can watch VK’s Channel describe how he arrived at it below, though it’s 10 minutes long for something that takes much less time to explain. Skip to the 6:35 mark if you’re short on time. Note that if you don’t have any cardboard lying around, folks are also using multiple sheets of paper, pieces of business cards, and tape suited for electronics. Basically, anything thin that can be cut to fit the area shown during the video is fair game.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
