Well, it’s a piece of cardboard…yes, a piece of cardboard. But, there’s more. It is an extension for the Nintendo switch. It comes in a kit with pre-made cardboard cut-outs that can connect with the Nintendo switch.
There are two Labo kits, Variety kit and Robot Kit. Variety kit has five separate Toy-Cons and costs $69.99 while the Robot kit costs $79.99. The Robot kit comes with a variety of pieces that when you put them together, they make some sort of a robotic toy. And for the Variety kit, you can make anything from a race car, to a fishing rod.
With the cutouts, they can be made into “Toy-Cons” that can communicate with the Nintendo software. With this product, it allows you to create anything from a piano, to a moving cardboard robot. Looking at preview videos, it looks as if whatever you dream of, you can build it.
The new software is coming with a feature called “Toy-Con Garage” which allows Nintendo users to create their own designs for Toy-Cons. The Nintendo Labo was first announced in January 2018. This unique device will be released sometime in April 2018.
