I'm making this thread mostly because I don't get to hear Plant bitch about things he doesn't like enough I'm the only person on here who has any remote likelihood of getting this (as I'm the only one with a child), so nobody else is going to make it.

 

I won't belabor what Labo is, we all know it. But things just got interesting since Nintendo has announced the "Toy Con Garage" functionality of Labo. Kotaku has an article here:

https://kotaku.com/n...robo-1822632217

 

There'll probably be a YouTube video later about it, but it basically sounds like a very simple visual programming language to make your own Labo stuff, wherein you can reprogram behaviors and map actions to button presses and stuff. This is what's really going to get Labo going, when people who are inclined to hack with stuff like this (myself included) get going on it, and use it to make things that Nintendo never thought of.

 

I can't wait until someone publishes plans for a Labo-compatible 3D printed "massaging device" that you slip a Joy-Con into, which allows someone to pleasure their partner from across the room, controlled by the touch screen.

It's going to happen.

That actually reminds me of this Lego kit i had when i was a kid. It had a large block with a mini computer inside that you connect to a regular computer with a cable to program. Then you could attach various motors and sensors to the block, and build various vehicles and robots with it and activate the programming to make them do cool shit. I wish i could remember what the kit was called, but i think it cost something like $500. I remember i had just turned 14 and had gotten an after school job at the local Dairy Queen just so i could save up to buy the thing... and then i only used it a couple of times before it just started sitting in my closet collecting dust.

I'm gonna keep posting things here, partly because I love antagonizing Plant.

 

Kotaku has a second article with a video up, that goes more in-depth with putting stuff together and playing it. It even has a video!

One thing they note is that the Joy Con with the IR sensor can basically be an infra-red camera that can see in the dark, and can let your little cardboard car creation chase after pets or animals. Mmmm, torture!

I've been calling this "literal trash" since day 1, and I'm pleased (yet not at all surprised) that this shit was nearly discarded as garbage. After all, I've heard about a similar "art" consisting of boxes/trash getting thrown away by the night crew in a museum.

+1 Yeah for wasting parent money.
-1 Yeah for talking about Labo.
