Kotaku was one publication that was invited to an event in New York today to showcase a Nintendo Labo creation. The site reports that when Nintendo Labo launches in April you will be able to build and customise your own cardboard robots. The feature is called Toy Con Garage and sounds like a lot of fun. Here’s their impressions of the product:
Nintendo representatives demonstrated this Toy Con Garage, which uses simple “building blocks” to let you program your devices. They’re essentially “if-then” statements. When you open up the program, you can select from a number of blocks based on input options for your Switch’s controllers, then connect them to other blocks based on output options. For example, you can connect the left Switch controller’s up button (input) to the right Switch controller’s vibration feature (output), so whenever you press up on the left Joy Con, the right Joy Con will buzz.
