TECH: The Latest Tech Material: Cardboard?

Nintendo cardboard

Nintendo is going low-tech for its newest line of video game accessories. The Japanese company has unveiled a series of DIY cardboard toys, called Nintendo Labo kits, for its wildly popular Switch gaming console.

Assembled from sheets of cardboard, the accessories are designed to interact with the Switch and its Joy-Con controllers in a variety of ways. For example, one toy is a 13-key cardboard piano that the console and controllers slot into. After putting it together, users can press the cardboard keys, and musical notes come out of the console.

Another kit builds an interactive robot suit with a visor, backpack and straps for the user’s hands and feet. When a person wears it, a giant robot on the screen mimics her moves. Nintendo calls the line of cardboard products “Toy-Cons.” They go on sale April 20.
