Nintendo has invited a very special guest to help promote its latest toy platform.
Bill Nye absolutely loves the Nintendo Labo!
Science educator William Sanford Nye (popularly known as Bill Nye) has been invited by video game company Nintendo. The ocassion? Why, to try out the Nintendo Labo of course!
In a video released by Nintendo, Bill Nye together with some of the team members tested out the Make, Play and Discover features of the Labo.
It’s nothing but fun people because it’s science!
Let’s MAKE a Labo!
The first part of the video shows Nye together with Daniel Orihuela, product marketing manager for Nintendo of America. The two unboxed the kot, showing off the cardboards and cutouts. The “Make” feature helps the users to create their desired toy-con from scratch, guiding them every step of the way. As demonstrated by Bill Nye, the instructions would come out from your very own Nintendo Switch.
It’s time to PLAY with your Nintendo Labo!
After building his very own RC car, Bill and Daniel put their Labos to an endurance test. Using their Switch screens as controllers, the two battled out inside the Labo ring to see which RC car could knock over who first. Before the battle, Bill commented on the amazing infrared feature of the joycons, which could detect human movements.
The match ended up with the science guy’s victory, using the classic pit maneuver.
Bill Nye also tried making and playing with the fishing rod labo. He really enjoyed the noise clicker!
