Nintendo is working on a new hospital-safe version of its popular Switch console.

Called the Starlight Gaming Station, the console is designed for hospital use. It’s easy to disinfect, can be wheeled from room to room, and comes loaded with 25 games.

The makers hope the console can offer “much-needed distraction” and even “emotional support” to kids stuck in a hospital bed.
