Nintendo to launch DIY cardboard toys for the Switch

If you're an adult living in the capital with access to a child who'd be up for building stuff out of cardboard, you might be able to try out Nintendo's upcoming Switch experience Labo next month, well before its official launch. One of the best features of the Switch showcased with Labo is the Joy-Cons.

Each construct works using a different feature of the Switch: the auto uses the vibrations of the Joy-Cons to make it move, while the piano uses the infrared cameras on the Joy-Cons to detect reflective tape on the keys and subsequently play the right notes.

Showcased using a mix of in-game footage and real-world moving parts, we now know that coming on April 20th 2018 is Nintendo Labo: A variety of minigames and experiences all controlled by cardboard models you assemble yourself. The "variety kit" will include five different games and Toy-Con, including the RC auto, fishing rod, and piano for $69.99.

In the variety pack you will get a selection of different Toy-Con, which are: a bug-like remote control "car", a motorcycle, a doll's house, a fishing rod and a piano.

In one of its characteristically eccentric and audacious moves, gaming giant Nintendo has announced a range of cardboard toys that interact with its popular Nintendo Switch console.

Another one of these kits includes an interactive robot suit equipped with a visor, backpack and straps for both the player's hands and feet. Simply hit the ignition button, turn the right handle to engage the accelerator and watch your adventure unfold on the Nintendo Switch screen, as you race to new destinations.

Once you've built them, all you have to do is add the Nintendo Switch's various components and you've got yourself a brand-new creation. Called Nintendo Labo, the first wave of the buildable "Toy-Con" range from a small remote control auto to a wearable robot jet-pack.
