Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Controllers Make Excellent Grasshopper Legs

If Nintendo is short on Labo ideas, which I doubt, here’s one from Twitter user Colonel Odonger: a cardboard grasshopper.

I have no idea what kind of game could be made with it, but putting those Joy-Cons in the grasshopper’s legs is neat. The building level, though, looks high.


Colonel Odonger has already been running Joy-Con cardboard tests before Nintendo Labo is released.

Call me ignorant, but if it doesn’t jump, what is the point of sticking joycon into it? I mean the purpose behind Labo is making cardboard move and do stuff interacting with a game interface, not making joycons look pretty with cardboard. Right?
