Nintendo's Joy-Con controllers also work with Windows, Mac, and Android devices
If you picked up Nintendo's new Switch console this weekend, you'll be glad to learn that the Joy-Con controllers work well on a Mac, Windows PC, or Android device. French Nintendo fan site Nintendo Actu has been experimenting with Joy-Cons on Windows and Android devices, and software engineer Sam Williams has discovered Nintendo's controllers also work on macOS.
On a Windows PC the separate Joy-Cons can be paired over Bluetooth, but you'll need an app like JoyToKey to map the buttons to mouse and keyboard controls. This works relatively well, and in my own testing I was able to play some Halo Wars 2 on a Windows 10 PC with just a single Joy-Con. Without the JoyToKey app, games don't appear to natively recognize the Joy-Con button arrangement on Windows PCs.
