Nin­tendo’s Switch isn’t Win­dows-based (boo!) but it’s push­ing in­ter­ac­tive bound­aries that could eas­ily cross over to the PC world. The lat­est innovation is Labo, a host of ex­per­i­men­tal card­board con­trollers you con­struct your­self. Slot in one of the Switch’s con­trollers, and you can use your card­board key­board to make real mu­sic, in­ter­act with games us­ing a pulpy robot suit, or even cre­ate your own con­troller us­ing the stick­ers in­cluded with the pack.

Play it Build your own key­board, then cus­tomise it – the per­fect out­let for creative kids.

Drive it Card­board con­trollers can in­ter­act with games too, like this mo­tor­bike han­dle­bar.

Move it Us­ing the Switch con­trollers’ vi­bra­tion mo­tors, you can even make rudi­men­tary ro­bots.
