Tesla - The Nintendo Switch Overlay Menu

What is it?

Tesla is a simple overlay menu that can be opened at any time. It let's the user use simple homebrew very quickly in this menu.
The default directory for overlays is /switch/.overlays where only .ovl files (Plain old .nro files renamed to .ovl to differentiate them from normal homebrew) get loaded.

How does one open it?

Once main files and desired modules are copied correctly to SD card, and the console has been restarted.
