Those jerks stole this from an old Kickstarter — or maybe not a Kickstarter, but I’ve seen an indy product that is just this

And that fundraiser 'stole' the idea from the Internet in general, where it was a bit of a meme

Yeah I remember being able to buy one of these dog tongue stickers a while back. I'm sure some people will think it's cute and buy it for their kids or something.

those lights in the middle ruins the image for me. it looks like the lights are the eyes.

I'm pretty sure the "lights are the eyes" was intentional.

GAH! Why are there multiple joy-con grips that angle the joy-con this (wrong) way?

You go for a V shape, like every other comfortable controller, not A shaped.

I know right? As if the standard grip wasn't uncomfortable enough, we need a proper V grip.

Huh? Aren't traditional controllers more A-shaped than V-shaped? I mean, I even tried holding my hands in a V-shape, and that seems even more uncomfortable, as if I am holding a steering wheel by the bottom.

I feel like I am misunderstanding what you mean when you're talking about a V grip

With the (unavoidable) awkwardness of the right joycon analog stick position, an A grip just exacerbates this, also for me, the default grip makes the L&R bumpers really uncomfortable to use, and again, an exaggerated A frame makes this worse.

I see, that makes sense. Though, does a V grip solve these problems? The buttons would be more... sensible places, but the shape would then really be uncomfortable, the way I imagine it

Hard to say until someone actually does it, it'd come down to execution but I think it could work.
