  • Pros: 

    Creates immersive experiences in an eco-friendly and really creative way. A really immersive gaming experience.


    Durability may be an issue

    Using the physical world to engage with video games is something we've wanted from Nintento from the beginning. Looks like the've finally delivered. I love that they've chosen cardboard instead of plastic. This makes developing and expanding very inexpensive. This leads to a much more personal for the kids, as they are encouraged to colour it and make it their own. This inspires creativity, not only for the kids, but also for the game developers as well. Any smart gaming company will create something like this for their games, and this experience truly sets the nintendo switch apart from any other console. Well done Nintendo, you have my respect.

Perfect timing. @suzywillow just bought me a Switch. 🙏🏼 Nintendo's on a tear this past year with the success of Switch and it's expansion to iOS/Android gaming (finally!).

This is why I love Nintendo. They've always thought of themselves more as a toy company and it shows in their games and consoles. Faster processors and better graphics are fine, but I always end up spending the most time with Nintendo consoles. They take risks and are willing to chase their imagination. Can't wait to try this out.

Very very nice project :) I remember when I was like 6 years old, daddy bought me a cassette for Commodore 64 with a software to simulate playing piano, and there was an accessory included with piano keys to put on the C64 keys. It actually "transformed" the computer into an electronic keyboard, the feeling was different when using it, and it was fun. So yes, of course cardboard objects can radically transform an experience. It makes me wish to design some objects/experiences for the Switch, though I'm not sure if it the platform will be open for others to design and offer Labo projects.
