Nintendo Switch New Experience lets you Become a Robot

First look at Nintendo Labo

So I woke up this morning at about 22:30 in my time with one Intention : to find out what Nintendo is about to unveil…

 You see earlier in the evening we got a single screen saying 

“Tune in to discover a new Interactive experience for Nintendo Switch that’s specially crafted for kids and those who are young at heart” 

All we we’re given to accompany this information was a date and time 17/01/2018 10pm UK time.

My mind started questioning what we could expect. Could it be new games using the IR camera? Could it be some new awkward accessories that would be getting all the wrong attention from Nintendo haters? What kind of experience do they mean and would adults enjoy it too?

Well a few minutes ago they revealed exactly well they delivered what they promise in a weird yet exciting fashion, a crafting experience called Nintendo Labo.

On the trailer above you could see all the weirdness that is literally cardboard and cord… Sounds quite stupid right? But what You are allowed to do with these cardboard pieces is assemble a variety of DIY creations that immerse us to interact with games in a form never seen before… 

You can play Piano , Catch a fish, ride a motorcycle, interact with characters inside a house, create a physically moving crawling toy and my favorite one, become a Robot. 

According to the official website there are two kits available 

Toy-Con 01 VARIETY KIT &

Toy-Con  02 ROBOT KIT

For info on both kits please visit there website, but today I just want to give my opinion on possible future applications of The ROBOT KIT

So the kit allows you to turn your body into a controller for the Nintendo Switch for a game that comes with the kit. You  use your four limbs and your head aswell.

If this sounds basic to you think of something else where you use your head and arms ,  Virtual Reality

Now I know there are parents for VR and Nintendo of France (I think) recently mentioned that they wouldn’t invest the money in that avenue but I don’t mean VR as in a submersible VR headset where you see yourself in the virtual world. This time I mean playing in the virtual would. As not just a robot but possibly a RPG where instead of buttons we interact with our bodies wearing this albeit ridiculous looking kit. It would still be pretty fun. Walking around for reals 😎, beating up whatever virtual enemies come our way… I won’t say any more on these thoughts of mine I just thought I’d like to mention it so that should it be done in the future I can say “I told you so”. 

Anyway. There is also a customization set which comes with some stencil sheets and some stickers which allows you to customise these cardboard accessories.

The most intriguing thing I noticed on the website however was a tiny mention saying “Dream up new ways to use your Toy-Con creations… And bring them to life”. Does this imply that we could build our own Toy-Cons using cardboard and whatever rough ideas we might have? We’ll have to find out soon , hopefully on the next Nintendo Direct.

If you stay near San Francisco or New York City, you could visit the Nintendo Labo Studio which will be in New York City on February 2-3 2018 and in San Francisco on March 2-4 2018. To apply to please visit there website.

Thanks for reading and please give me any feedback on the contact page, and feel free to leave a comment on the comments section. 

Goodnight World…

Taking a Magic Leap

Above you see the future…

Now although I type this post on a device called a smartphone, in about ten years they would all be things of the past. 

The thing about smartphones is that all the information remains on the screen and we enter real information into it. With applications such as Pokemon Go we can some how mix digital elements into reality. The problem though or rather the current one is that with smartphones the digital elements are restricted to the side on the screen. . . 

Imagine a World Without Screens…
Enter the mixed reality Headset…

My favorite mixed reality headset for the past few years has been Microsoft’s HoloLens. HoloLens saw a portable device not tethered to anything which spacially mapped the environment and mixed digital holograms into it. The issue was however that it was bulky, but not too much of a issue. Its based on Windows 10 operating system and is rather amazing. But at a cost of $3000 for the developers edition it’s cost is rather a eye opener and renders the system as “not consumer friendly” as the general public cannot afford it. 
Microsoft Hololens in action

Enter Magic Leap.

Now today this system was unveiled to the world. Known as the Lightwear headset it is smaller and appears to be much more consumer friendly and easier to accept in society. Although a three component system, with the headset connected to the computer with wires in our wireless world, I’d much rather wear that on my head than the Bulky Hololens.

With the design of the Lightwear built to be lightweight and comfortable to carry, this looks like the mic better option so let us discuss what I’ve learnt about the headset today and do some minor comparisons to my own smartphone (which is not much to brag about as it is the Huawei Honor 6 lite).
That’s where I put my Screen.

With Smartphones we have one screen at a time, we have the option of split screen multitasking on our newer Android Devices and foldable phones courtesy of ZTE and the soon to be Released Samsung X. We even have the option of sharing our screens to our Larger screens wirelessly with Mirrorshare and with Samsungs Dex.

But we’re still restricted to holding the screen in our hands so to say…

Now let me put this into perspective for you. Imagine taking a piss in the bathroom as I am now while I use my right hand to type, except inside the toilet you’ve got a screen playing game of Thrones…

You then go to the lounge and continue watching  Shameless  like you were earlier on. Your girlfriend is sitting on her couch and she’s looking up at the ceiling watching the latest episode of her favourite animé. You know this because she told you that that is what she’s doing, but you only see a hologram if the solar system when you look up at the ceiling… And she doesn’t see you watching Shameless either… You’ve got a 60” screen in your bedroom that you’ve being doing that spreadsheet on all week. But when visitors come the screen isn’t there and the only screen you really have is the little 40″ FHD LG cinema 3D TV you bought 10 years ago… 

This is what Magic Leap brings to the table. The ability to lay screens anywhere in your environment. It also remembers where you put it… Get the Picture… For me that is my personal favourite Part… 

Gaming without Borders.

When Pokemon Go first came to South Africa everyone was walking around the hospital swiping there screens with there phones pointed at a Patient Who was confused and staring in shock… I remember my one colleague with his phone aimed and the floor trying to catch ekans… 

Now imagine playing a first person shooter where the zombies are roaming around your house and you have to shoot the shit out of them. Mixed reality in the scale of Hololens and magic leap allows Holograms to interact with the spacial environment which allows for gaming on a much more grander scale…

Now I’m tired and I have to go to bed but if you want more information check out the sources…

I didn’t even do any editing of this draft I apologize but I’m working at 6am tomorrow morning and it’s already 8:51pm so I must catch the bus to Dreamland… Goodnight and Happy Tripping…

Review Coming soon

So Kayla just booked us tickets to see Star Wars Episode 8. I’ve been waiting since 2015 to see this movie. My anticipation is on another level…

Star Wars has influenced my Life in So many Ways. To the extent that I’m contemplating to name my firstborn ‘Anakin’ or ‘Luke’ and if it’s a Girl ‘Leia’.

Anywho. I’ll do my formal review after I’ve seen the film with spoilers aswell so allow me to enjoy the film and for those who saw it shush…


Falling from a 2000ft skyscraper you realize that landing might not be the best thing you can do on Valentine’s day. All the red around town reminds you of what may just be your blood about to scatter all around the pavement. You may just die a beautiful death which had you thinking about all sorts of things. Like how hot hell must be. And do they even have place for a person like you? I mean your not the worst person in the World even despite all the horrible things you’ve done throughout your years. But your not the most morally correct person in the world either.  How could this happen to you. Is it not true that bad things happen to bad people? But your not bad. Your convinced that your quite good I mean you’ve done a reasonable amount of good deeds in your life, right?  

Think about it… I mean if you didn’t do much good you wouldn’t have made it this far. But what good have you done? And what does  good actually mean?

You start to define your perception of good and then you think about it. Good means when something goes in your favor right? Well when something goes in your favor does it not go against the favor of someone else? Think about it. 

 Your walk into your house and find Cockroaches running all around what do you do? Have the house fumigated right? That’s good. But is it good  for the cockroach?

Wait …  

 Weren’t you busy falling from a 2000ft skyscraper? 

If you jumped down with the intention to fall and die, and you survived, would it be a good thing? Or would it be bad?

Hi There

While many people on earth in this timeline calls me “Josh”, my real name is actually Lord Joshua Micheal Dolley.

I’m a fictional character in Books,Movies, and games. I myself prefer to be a Nintendo Exclusive but it depends on where your living. In this reality I play the role of myself enjoying every bit of Nihvhana as I have reached the level beyond higher consciousness. I have a day Job as a Vampire (Weird I know) and by Nightfall I am the Leader of a Organization who’s name may not be said.

I enjoy everything that exists , have a small number of brothers and My beautiful Girlfriend Kayla.  At the moment she’s on my mind almost all day long.

Kayla and Joshua Micheal.

I know I sound in-love but I am so hey read at own risk.

I have a odd number of friends. But we all know how to have a good time. I’m quite the opposite of a Loner, and have acquaintances in the highest and Lowest of Places.

Lord Joshua Micheal Dolley

A fun day on land with @Its_Kirzo and @lylestyle3496

I,Lord Joshua Micheal, have travelled to different times seen all sorts of places and done all sorts of things.

For example, I Lord Joshua Micheal Dolley ; created google, blew up the dinosaurs, trained IP Man the art of Wing Chun, taught Buddha how to meditate, taught Tupac how to rap, ended apartheid, started World War VI, saved 192 Billion Lives in the Gamma Quadrant. And I accidentally crippled professor X, to name a few of the tragedies of my existence.

What make it fun though is, I think I might’ve forgotton when am I headed to next. On December 4th 2016, my contract to keep the Kaiju out of Japan expired,so currently I don’t have any Superhero obligations so a free schedule is all I have to look forward to. So now it’s time for this intelligent tripper to explore what’s next

Anyway,readers can use this Blog to follow my happenings. Enjoy and May the Force be With You.
