Some of you might have heard of Nintendo’s upcoming ‘Labo’ platform, but are unfamiliar with what this anticipated interactive model kit does.

In a nutshell, ‘Labo’ is Nintendo’s gaming-cum-construction toy platform aimed to teach you about engineering and basic programming while having fun.

It comprises cardboard cut-outs and other resources that can be used together with its Switch console display as well as ‘Joy–Con’ controllers to build ‘Toy-Cons’, which have the capability to interact with gaming software.

As a lead up to its official April 2018 launch, Nintendo introduces you to one key feature of ‘Labo’ called ‘Toy-Con Garage’.

Instead of merely following instructions to develop robots and more, Nintendo encourages you to “invent new ways to play” with this free-code software that offers greater flexibility to build according to your heart’s desire.

For example, you can program its ‘Joy-Con’ controllers to set off an echo after a specific number of shakes. Sounds complicated? Don’t worry because what’s even more impressive is the simple, user-friendly interface that Nintendo’s built to help you code with ease. Simply select an input and connect it to an output as demonstrated in the video below.
