After watching the trailer, I was blown away at the creativity behind Nintendo's new concept. It's really cool to see how Switch has taken gaming to a new place. I can foresee people designing their own prototypes for a more immersive AR/VR experience. Any other thoughts?
I was thinking the same thing, but I don't really see how people can design custom protoypes unless Nintendo provides a SDK and allows developers to write custom Labo software.
Also, the video shows some cool ideas that are not actually included in the kits (e.g. foot pedal).
My only thought was that foot pedal is getting destroyed, along with many other of their cardboard devices. Some seemed interesting but all in all this is going to be a flop.
Remember you wrote this in 4 months time when this product starts printing money for Nintendo.
Get back to me in a year or two. If Labo is still around in two years, I'll happily eat mown words.
This looks so goddamn fun!
Was about to write the same thing. They are amazing
There will be workshops in Feburary!
I will be bringing my nephew in to one (if there's any space)
This is the perfect gift for adults & kids to play together… It is a first day purchase for me!
I dont get how the piano keys are connected to the switch? Anyone know?
Nintendo uses the infrared motion camera in the right Joy-Con to detect which key is pressed on the piano, presumedly by using a reflective tape on those keys.
Oh that's pretty neat. I had no idea it had those cameras built into the controllers.
it's like something out of Canes Arcade.
OMG, this was such a wonderful watch. Thanks for sharing. Oh, and that kid is going places! Damn!
Nintendo are an absolute joy and this product looks fantastic - however - Nintendo will more than likely need to single handedly provide software for it as I can't see many third party publishers being interested.
The success of it is in their hands... so to speak
Very different for game manufacturers. Cardboard AR isn't anything new, but its interesting to see Nintendo play in this area. I'd love to see this in practice and see how far nintendo takes this but I honestly would have been more interested in seeing a toy manufacturer handle it with a smartphone as opposed to a console. The price of entry is exceedingly high for what may be abandoned relatively quickly, luckily the switch itself is a great device.
