Nintendo has launched a virtual reality kit for the Switch – and it is made out of cardboard. The new Labo releases is part of a series of cardboard kits, which include other products such as a cardboard kit that turns its wearer into a robot. Nintendo was one of the pioneers of VR in gaming: its Virtual Boy, launched in 1995, was pioneering but roundly derided by critics and shut down four years later amid commercial failure. It has not entered the market again in the 20 years since, but rumours have spread since before the Switch was even released that it could be perfect for virtual reality, if its display was slotted into a headset. We'll tell you what's true.
