Today Nintendo unveiled the Nintendo Labo, a weird product no one could have possibly predicted. Basically a bunch of cardboard contractions which the Switch and joycons can be put into to simulate a bunch of different things. My first reaction was 'wth is this?' But then I saw the switch powering a remote controlled joycon-cardboard bot and what looks like a VR-like giant robot game, and things started to click. While I've been impressed by the HD rumble on the joycons, this seems to take that concept to the next level, and there are points that look like a more kid-friendly and low-tech version of VR. I don't know what to think about this. It's so out there that it could be great or terrible and there's no way to tell until we can actually try it out. But I don't think Nintendo is just charging $70 for cheap cardboard. There's a lot more to this.
