      Amazing engineering - Origami meets video game

      Posted
      Hutch

      When we purchased our Switch for the grandbabies (3, 5 and 6 years old) we also purchased this box. It was going to be for them to build with their dad. It sat, unopened till last week when the older grandkids (10, 11 and 14) came to visit. The oldest had it built and playing in about 3 hours. I could not believe the design and engineering effort that went into creating this. Looking at it, I was sure it was going to be broken in a day or two. Now, after two weeks of playing by all but the youngest, it still works as designed. I'm very impressed by this puzzle/engineering/action game. The directions to build the thing are beautifully created as part of the on-screen gameplay and, when put together... well I'm still not sure what the goal of the game is. Note: You need to consider who will be putting this together before you buy it. It's not something that you take out of the box, plug in and start playing. It takes some time to get through the creation of the backpack (2 to 3 hours of uninterrupted time). If you're a mom or dad looking for a project to do with the 8 to 16 year olds, I highly recommend this.

      Great concept using cardboard and nintendo switch

      It took us two and a half hours to make the robot backpack, which is a phenomenon of cardboard engineering when you open it up and see all the gears and pulleys that connect to your arms and feet. Separating the Joy-Cons are used to monitor how the pulleys move and this is then translated into the onscreen actions of a giant robot stomping around in a city. The robot has all method of different abilities, you can punch, walk, fly, become a vehicle and shoot lasers, this all works extremely well and, most importantly, reliably, which is not something you normally associate with what are essentially motion controls. Robot Kit is an amazing novelty, but once again the actual video game aspect is fairly simple. There’s more to unlock, including the ability to customize your in-game robot and play musical instruments when you move your limb, most of the fun is by making the Toy-Con itself. I recommend this product to anyone, don't judge the book by its cover, try it and play it, and find our for yourself if is great or not.

      This was born out of Japanese Culture.

      I pre-order this package because of many things: 1. As a VR AR developer, I am frustrated with the poor controller design by HTC, Oculus, Daydream, and Gear VR. LABO is a breakthrough and an inspiration for specialty controllers. 2. Grow up with Anime and Japanese toys. Cardboard is a very important component in this experience. From the monthly children learning magazine's folding cardboard toys to the famous anime characters and robots made of cardboard, LABO is the next big thing to extend this cultural significance. However, I don't think Americans would appreciate cardboard as much as Japanese do other than packing materials. 3. Putting this together by yourself is long and painful. It is like experiencing one of those love of first sight romance with a quick burn out. The robot box is so many works. We only played for about 30 mins, I had not touched it for the past 3 weeks. I recommend starting with the other box set first.

      First of all, this took me four hours to assemble. It was really something. That said, assembling it gives you a real understanding for how it works, and for capabilities that you maybe never knew were built into your Nintendo Switch. As tiring as the assembly process was, the end result was me thinking that the folks at Nintendo are brilliant on a level that really no other game company is right now. The use (and accuracy) of the sensors in the joy-cons along with the Labo kit are just brilliant. So, if you appreciate imaginative and (after assembly) fun products, and have the patience to do the build, you will probably have the same reaction I did, which is...wow. Nintendo is doing some impressive work right now.

      Fun creative toy for the kids

      Let's face it, in this day with technology and screens everywhere, it's going to be near impossible to keep our kids off it. This is at least a bandaid on that issue. My kid loved the building of this robot, it took a lot of time and he was anxious from the time he opened the box to get going. I will say you do have to be careful with some of the parts when popping them out of the cardboard. More than once we had some issues with things almost ripping. The game is fun, and let us spend a lot of time building the item together. I'm not sure how long the appeal will last htough, as it seems the biggest appeal is the building part. Once it's built, not sure the game itself will hold its own very long.

      Fun to Craft and Build

      It was fun building it - even though it took around 4 hours to craft. The instructions with the visuals were clear and concise - sometimes even providing creative and entertaining commentary on certain steps. The pistons are an interesting and well-thought idea for the game's way of sensing your movement. However when putting it on and playing the game, the scary thought of breaking it crosses one's mind. Not only that, but the things to do with the robot after a while seemed lackluster. However, overall, it was fun to build and a unique way to play video games.

      Awesome combination of building and digital game

      We had just purchased the Nintendo Labo Variety Kit for our grandson's birthday and loved it so much that he used his birthday money to buy the Nintendo Robot Kit. He is 10 and was able to put the entire kit together without adult help. It kept him busy for a couple of days building it and now has an awesome interactive toy which requires physical movement in order to "play" the game. Whoever designed this knows upper elementary school kids. Worth every cent.

      Nintendo does it again

      Initially I could justify myself spending $80 for the toy con 2. Bought it for my boys 6 years of age. Seeing them assemble the boxes and spending good time playing was totally worth it! The box comes with everything you need including the software and coded cardboard cutouts. Assembly took about 6 hrs by my boys to assemble. This seems like Nintendo’s way into immersive gaming.
