As one of the most famous and respected gaming company, Nintendo released a new concept of gaming. This new concept of gaming is what they call, Labo. Labo is a cardboard creator kit for makers that works with the Switch. The Nintendo Switch is a gaming tablet with a touch screen and two detachable controllers on either side. Those controllers, called Joy-Cons, are packed with tons of interesting hardware. The Nintendo Switch works with Labo, which is made entirely out of cardboard, to make the gaming experience a more interactive and fun gaming session.

Nintendo Labo is planned for release on April 20th of this year, and will be sold in two kits, the Variety Kit and the Robot Kit for $69.99 and $79.99. The Variety kit lets you build five different projects: The RC Car, a house, a motorbike, a fishing rod, and an 11 key piano. The robot kit lets you build the previously mentioned, robot suit. This includes a headset, backpack straps, and all of the tension cords to assemble it. Both kits also include software for the switch.

What does this have to do with engineering? This has to do with engineering because you must build everything in the Labo kit in order to play with it.
