I think this looks great, especially for the GR dads who have Switches! Plus I have a little niece on the way so I can introduce her to gaming in a fun new way

The genius required to come up with this is astonishing.

The 10 year old me would have been first in line. This is a system seller, no doubt.

'Like cardboard Lego': Nintendo Labo turns homemade models into interactive toys

So... costs?

I guess there will be a fee for the software and I can understand that... perhaps the software is a single, expandable thing that will be updated as Nintendo releases new cardboard kits? I wonder how much the cardboard its will be?

I imagine that Nintendo could link up with other software publishers to make things that tie in with specific games or are based on characters. There is a ton of potential with this... it's pretty exciting!

Apparently uses a proprietary cardboard, so they have to charge £40 per sheet.

Scoop for the Guardian there. How did they keep it so secret? Actually sounds reasonably complex, AR... Actually glad I stayed up to watch that. Now I just need to purloin some kids!!

Surely the mini house should point to an incoming Animal Crossing, showing your living room in your cardboard house. Surely a shoe-in for E3?

...and the "customisation kit" - two stencils, two sheets of stickers and two rolls of tape - is ten dollars.

It looks cool but this feels like it'll be very expensive. Enthusiasm being rapidly reigned back.

Genius idea, fantastic implementation. Kids will love it unreservedly, and I think it's pretty certain a lot of the kits will be fun for older gamers too.
