Programming a song on Nintendo Labo with Toy-Con Garage took all of my brainpower #MusicMonday #Labo #Switch

This video from The Verge shows some of what the Labo can do outside the cardboard sets. You can go surprisingly deep with programming on the system.

Over the last few weeks on YouTube, Nintendo’s been teasing what you can do with Labo — the DIY cardboard accessory kit for the Switch — which comes out this Friday. One of the most intriguing videos was a demonstration of Toy-Con Garage, the programming platform within Labo’s software. Using the toy piano included in the Variety Kit, a makeshift cardboard guitar, and multiple controllers (including one attached to some Crocs), Nintendo showed off a Labo band.

Toy-Con Garage works with a series of input and output nodes. You can set your input (for instance, a touch bar) and connect that to an output node (in our case, making a guitar sound). Inputs and outputs are highly customizable. You can set them so that a part of the screen lights up when you shake a controller, or make a blue controller vibrate when an IR sticker is detected by the infrared camera on the red controller. You can also have outputs be dependent on multiple inputs, which was the part I had the most difficulty with.
