    When the first PS4 webkit exploit came out, a gameboy emulator Cinoop was ported to it using a very interesting method. The HTML page which the exploit is on creates a huge canvas element filled with a repeating pattern. Then, the native emulator code looks for that pattern in RAM and writes to the raw canvas data, making the screen show things. I assume a similar thing could be made to pass button data from JS into the emulator with an offscreen or display:none canvas. Do you think these tricks would work on Switch?

    Sounds like an Interesting Concept on the Switch.
