The next-gen gadget is the Nintendo NX, and patents filed by the company suggest that you will be able to use it as a portable console, in addition to being a home console that you can play on your TV.

One patent reveals a “free-form screen” feature that works as a supplemental computing device for the NX. Additionally, there is a patent filed in December that reinforces this concept.

It was shown to the public last week and it consists of a square, touch-based interface that is simple, and uses sound and vibration technology.
