Virtual Reality (VR) technology is spreading fast, and gaming is not left behind.
Yesterday, 6th March 2019, Nintendo announced the latest in its Labo line of cardboard accessories. It turns the Nintendo Switch into a makeshift VR kit.
Nintendo was a part of most of our childhood. It has come a long way since the days of Ninja Turtle and Contra 1988 classic, Super Mario will always take us down memory lane.
This Labo set has a variety of kits. The most expensive is the complete VR set that costs N29,000 ($79.99). It includes six different cardboard kits to build, including VR goggles, a camera, and a screen holder and a safety cap.
The kits will also include the Labo software, which features games, step-by-step instructions, and the “garage” mode for building your own Labo creations.
The Nintendo device will not come with a head strap. The game giants claim they were opting for devices that players can hold up to their faces; that way, it can be more of a social experience.
Most VR headsets have higher refresh rates and pixel density to enhance realism. Finding out how this works will be interesting.
The new VR kits will be available from 12th April.
