Nintendo's cardboard cardboard construction kits for Switch were launched last week, offering a multitude of projects to build and play. But the beauty of Labo is that you can turn the cardboard and the Switch into something. For example, the variety kit comes with a piano, but The Damling The Verge and Meg Toth decided to make their own cardboard guitar for a female band .
Since launch last Friday, many people have found experimental and out-of-the-ordinary uses for the Labo, including a candy dispenser, several paper versions of the games and LCD games for the watch and the change as a simple watch. We have put together some of the best and most novel ways in which Labo has been used last week.
In a moment of nostalgia, the Twitter user @BSpowerx has created a DIY paper version of the classic Game & Watch title Fire with cardboard cutouts of the characters that are illuminated and controlled by the Joy-Con controllers.
Here is another creation of Game & Watch Labo:
Games are a big part of Labo's content creation. A Twitter user created a sound game that deposits candies when he presses the touch screen of the Switch at the correct time.
In this game, Joy-Con controllers join two improvised cardboard drums to create a rhythm game:
Also, a game of tic-tac-toe:
Here's a clock that works :
Here is a version of Labo from "All Star" because it had to happen.
Best of all, though, it's an opportunity to customize your Joy-Con controllers, either with bulging eyes or turning them into a Vulpix.
Have you seen other interesting uses? Or have you built your own cardboard creations?
