These Hybrid AR-VR Goggles Were Designed For The Nintendo Switch

Nintendo has always been a brand that has bucked trends and forged their own path — which is evidenced in most of their console releases over the years. They’re simply not playing the same game as Sony and Microsoft, and it’s working out pretty well for them. However, we’d find it hard to believe that they will be able to avoid emerging trends like VR and AR for too long, which must be what designer James Tsai though when he came up with the Nintendo Joy-Glasses concept.

There is reason to believe that Nintendo might embrace these technologies at some point, as they did come out with a pseudo-VR headset, called the Virtual Boy, in the ’90s. Furthermore, Nintendo properties — e.g. Pokémon GO — have seen success in the AR market. This concept kind of combines those two ideas into a Switch-ready hybrid AR/VR (or “mixed reality”) pair of glasses that would seamlessly integrate with existing Nintendo tech. And there’s no denying that their playful-yet-well-considered silhouette certainly fits into the brand’s design language. Right now, this is just a concept, but we’d be lying if we said we wouldn’t go out and buy a pair on launch day, should Nintendo pursue something similar.
