Nintendo Labo VR Kit

Mar 8, 2019

Category: Tech

When they were first announced, Nintendo’s Switch-based DIY Labo gaming kits were some of the most interesting gaming innovations we’d ever seen. While they seemed little more than a novelty at first, the Japanese gaming giant has proven their staying power, this time with a new addition: the Labo VR Kit.

The flat-packed DIY kit is designed to turn your Nintendo Switch into a VR headset, along with some other add-on goodies that expand the gaming experience into the physical realm. All made from folding pre-cut and -colored cardboard, they include a blaster, camera, elephant head, bird, wind pedal, and (of course) goggles — along with the necessary software to play with them. Available in April either as a complete set or as a starter kit and two expansion packs, the pricing for the Nintendo Labo VR gaming kits starts at $40.

Purchase: $40+
