Nintendo Labo, which promises to turn simple cardboard cutouts into a wide range of fun and interactive objects, shows the full potential of the Switch.
This is crazy as hell. I didn't see it coming, and I'm willing to bet nobody did.
I sure as heck didn't! They weren't kidding when they said it was aimed at the young and young-at-heart. I'm not the artsy-fartsy type so this DIY thing isn't something I'll invest in, but it'll be interesting to see what kinds of things people come up with for it.
Looks interesting. Curious to see what other creative patterns emerge from 3rd parties.
Nintendo does a great job keeping things from getting leaked.
Yeah I didn't expect Nintendo to release a literal cardboard box for $70 and for people to be excited about it.
Lmao is it 70 dollars? This reminds me of all the stuff they made in the forest in Swiss Army Man. Its kinda cool though, not gonna lie. The way they can just put their hardware in a shell like this and make experiences out of it is fascinating. This is like the evolution of the wii wheel, basically.
Brilliant idea, just definitely not for me lol.
Potential is insane on the this thing, parents will be broke next holiday season.
Imagine if the racing wheel and pedal one is bundled with a reworked version of the arcade, VR Mario Kart? It'd sell like crazy. I'm gonna guess the wheel will be its own separate release and it will launch alongside another "starter pack" that includes the gun, camera, joystick, kickpedal, swan thing, and the weird arm things. That would be consistent with what's coming out this first wave. I bet those will be out this holiday.
I would definitely love to play Mario kart with this. That would be cool lol great for the kids tho I'm just wondering how much content it will actually have.
hmmmm......a Virtual Boy Labo shipped with red glossy cardboard....I might buy it. lol
Maybe a flying cardboard drone will be released somedays. Come on Nintendo, you know you wanna. I would buy it in an instant.
Woah, better buy Nintendo stock. This thing will fly off the shelves.
Looks cool as, unfortunately I don't think it will sell well imo. Wonder book looked cool but failed but it is nintendo so maybe it'll fair better.
I love it. Nintendo being Nintendo. Creative, imaginative....however...some of those setups would concern me with the support of the console. Wouldn't want to drop it as the cardboard could be loose.
I think the potential is huge, I had an image in my head earlier of a cardboard R.O.B remember the robot packed with the NES. That could be amazing having interactions or mini games. It certainly has collectability written all over it.
