Nintendo on Wednesday introduced a new line of interactive DIY cardboard creations that come to life with the power of the Switch. Dubbed Nintendo Labo, the initiative features packaged kits filled with modular sheets of cardboard that Switch owners can build into objects such as pianos, fishing rods and motorcycles. Once the construction is finished, the Switch and the Joy-Con controllers can interact with the creations (which are called Toy-Cons).
Each kit interacts with the console in a unique way. For example, the console slides into the top of the 13-key piano while the right Joy-Con slots into a pocket on the side. From there, the IR Motion Camera in the controller can detect which keys you press and will immediately translate them into notes which you'll hear from the Switch.
