The "Switch" is as popular as ever, but you know Nintendo is a company that will not rest on its laurels.  The video game giant has just unveiled its latest gaming accessory, a project they are calling "Nintendo Labo." Essentially, the Labo is a series of sets of cardboard cutouts marketed as "a new line of interactive build-and-play experiences designed to inspire kids and those who are kids-at-heart." Kids can fold and manipulate these cardboard cutouts and fold them into various toys and objects, like a 13-key piano or a fishing rod. You pair with the Labo with a Switch console, opening it to a seemingly endless possibility of combinations of interactive fun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=87&v=P3Bd3HUMkyU Of course, this kind of innovation like cardboard will not be inexpensive.  The Switch console alone will run you about $300, and upon its relase, the Labo will retail for $69.99 for the Variety Kit, and $79.99 for the Robot Kit. The product was designed to encourage the imaginations of kids, which is who it's intended for. https://twitter.com/MikeDrucker/status/953755810391384065?ref_src=twsrc%... https://twitter.com/PKSparkxx/status/954012643777503232?ref_src=twsrc%5E... https://twitter.com/0DanSmith/status/953753359822987264?ref_src=twsrc%5E...
