Introducing Nintendo Labo

Nintendo LABO Variety Kit

The Nintendo Switch is such an amazing innovation in video gaming. However, it is not often that a video game platform has real world applications. The Nintendo Switch is no ordinary gaming platform. Below is a press release about the new Nintendo LABO which is a special DIY kit that you can build physical games that work with the joycons and the screen. One of the kits even transforms you into a robot and as you move the robot on the screen does too. It is a cool way to use the technology of the Nintendo Switch in such a great way.

Nintendo has put together a preview video to show people these new toys or toycons that you can make and then use with the Nintendo Switch. You can watch that below and then read the full press release below that and if you want to purchase these toys I have links to where you can pre-order them.

Driving and the Xtreme Cycle Moto-Cam Preview

Send off to Deb
Photo-A-Day #4154

We do a sendoff to my supervisor tonight at work. Her name is Deb and our manager brought in Little Debbie snacks for the party. First dad joke that hit all year.

I’ve been trying to get good video for the Xtreme Cycle Moto-Cam. I took it with me yesterday to shoot footage before work. Then this morning I took it back to the skate park a second time to get footage from the Moto-Cam itself. However, I am having trouble with the cycle. It is not recording as I expect and I can’t get the files to use on my computer. They are ending up being unreadable. I’m getting a lot better at driving the cycle but I have crashed it many times and sometimes from great heights. The handlebars are busted, but it still can drive. The gyro is making a god-awful noise, but it still drives. The camera does record and I can see the videos through an app called VLC on my phone, but not my computer.

I ran into a guy at the Skate Park. He watches Youtube videos all the time. Mostly Video games and toy reviews, so I think he found my vlog today and left me a comment. I offered to let him drive the Xtreme Cycle but he didn’t want to, he’d rather watch.

The Xtreme Cycle is overall pretty good, there are some flaws to it but it does do some cool things. I’m beating the heck out of it as I try and get some good footage. There is some footage in today’s video. I edited this very quickly and very sloppily. Sorry about that. Next one will be better.
