Nintendo Labo makes the Switch cardboard compatible

The Nintendo Labo Variety Kit for Nintendo Switch includes a cardboard punchout model of a working

Nintendo Labo invites anyone with a creative mind and a playful heart to make, play and discover in new ways with Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo Labo has two kits - the variety Kit and The Robot Kit. The kits are made up of modular cardboard components that can be built into various real-world items "specially created to interact with the Nintendo Switch" and allow gamers to "relive their childhood".

The first look at the Nintendo Labo was released on Nintendo's YouTube channel on January 17, 2018.

The Variety Kit comes with five projects to create two Toy-Con RC cars, a Toy-Con fishing rod, a Toy-Con house, a Toy-Con motorbike, and a Toy-Con Piano.

New Updated Xbox Elite Controller Photos Leaked
Microsoft had applied for a patent on this exact stick design in December, so there's at least some degree of truth to the claims. Hopefully it makes it to India sooner than the current Xbox Elite Controller did - a whole year after its worldwide debut.

The initial iterations of Nintendo Labo will come in two kits: The Variety Kit and the Robot Kit. These include the Robot Kit (players can build their own cardboard robot) and the Variety Kit (including an RC auto, a piano, a fishing rod, a house, and a motorbike), but the announcement trailer for the Labo hinted at several future Toy-Cons kits too. Nintendo will also be selling customization sets, including tape, stickers, and stencils, for $9.99 a set. Users place the Switch's Joy-Con controllers and the tablet itself into the creations to play the games. That said, though, these will presumably be part of the next Toy-Cons sets that Nintendo officially announces. The primary objective of Nintendo Labo is to get kids playing games more interactively. When worn, you become a robot on the Switch, which moves like you do. Save a trip to the lake and catch a big one using a makeshift fishing rod. According to The Verge, the Joy-Con's infra-red camera can see the keys and detect which ones are being pressed. You place the Switch and the Joy-Cons in the appropriate slots, turn on the minigame, and boom. Pressing the ignition button starts the engine, while twisting the right handle activates the throttle. You can also make a house (which'll have a super cute creature in it for you to care for), or a motorbike that's controlled by functional handlebars.

Imagine creating a cardboard piano and then being able to actually play it, or creating a giant robot suit which then directly controls the robot within the game.

As for price, Nintendo Australia hasn't confirmed an RRP, but EB Games is now offering preorder prices: the Variety Kit for $99.95, the Robot Kit for $119.95, and $14.95 for the Customisation Set.
