Have you ever pressed the Nintendo Switch to your face until your arms got tired? Well, now you can pay $ 80 to do that. Nintendo rem-less VR kit will release the market on April 12, 2019.
Let's backtrack a little. If you haven't heard, Nintendo's supermoro Labo kit is mini-engineering and programming games. When you first open the Labo kit, pull out a lot of stenciled cardboard. But then you put the card together (according to the instructions), and you end up with planes, knobs, pianos and fishing rods that can be used to play AR games.
Nintendo takes things one step further with a line of VR Labo kit. But they are not like regular VR headsets, they are themes like elephant socks, rocket guns and cameras. When you "wear" these Labo VR headsets, you look like a rifle-made creature, or someone who got a birdhouse attached to your head. What is even more strange is that they do not have main beams, they have handles (like the handles on a gun or the lens on an SLR camera). This sounds very neat, because each parent wants the child to be twisted around the room with a $ 300 tablet and a cardboard elephant mask.
Talk about money, the entire Labo VR kit costs $ 80. To be honest, it's not a bad deal. The complete package includes 6 VR headsets, so you get 6 time-consuming construction projects and games for $ 14 each. And because you can program the Labo kits yourself in the "Garage" mode, the possibilities are technically endless. Of course, you can go to the cheaper $ 40 "VR Goggles and Blaster" starter package, and buy your 20-pack "Camera and Elephant" or "Bird and Wind Pedal" packages at your own discretion.
Although this VR set sounds ridiculous and weird, it's probably quite fun. The other Labo kits (which are equally ridiculous) are really good additions to the Nintendo Switch series. When the Labo VR kit is released on April 12, we just need to find out if it can live up to the Labo name.
