Professor Warren Buckleitner and an excited group of IMM students took a field trip to the Nintendo Lab Press Event in New York City in March 2019. On April 12, Nintendo released a set of cardboard VR “Labo” kits powered through the Nintendo Switch. IMM students were given a rare advance opportunity to test out six of the pre-release VR “Toy-Con” tools, including the elephant, which draws in a 3D space. Overall, the students found the various “Toy-Con” tools very fun and responsive, although they concluded that further testing was required.
