When Nintendo unveiled the Labo, they positioned it in such a way that it seemed like you could create anything with it. In fact we’re already starting to see how people are taking advantage of it to come up with some pretty clever and creative inventions, such as a controller for an electric wheelchair.
Now in a recent video uploaded by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, it shows musician Ariana Grande performing with Jimmy and The Roots who are using nothing just Nintendo Switch consoles and Labo kits as musical instruments. It is a very impressive performance and we wouldn’t be surprised if Nintendo sponsored the entire thing, but regardless it does a good job at showing what the Labo can do.
In fact if you were to close your eyes, you might not even be able to tell that electronic instruments were used. We should also point out that the Labo isn’t the only musical instrument for the Switch as Korg has also launched their own music creation app on the Switch, allowing Switch users to use the console to create music on the go.
In any case if you have a few minutes to spare and want to see how the Labo holds up as musically, check out the video above.
