It is possible that this photo could have been faked, but unlikely, fail0verflow have previous released hacks for the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Wii, so this is probably the real deal for the Switch. The console in the picture appears to have some external hardware attached, including cables etc, which suggests that the console may need to be modified to run the hack.
