Nothing about the Labo VR Kit, Nintendo’s foray into virtual reality, should work. Compared to other virtual reality systems, the frame-rate is sluggish and the graphics are kind of crap. It’s so cheaply constructed it’s literally made of cardboard. There’s no huge, immersive world to get lost in. There isn’t even a strap to keep it attached to your face.
But Nintendo has defied conventional video game logic and created one of the most interesting, useful and fun application of virtual reality I’ve seen.
