Nintendo kicked off its second Nintendo Labo Creators Contest last month, encouraging fans to create stunning inventions with the cardboard accessories. The North American winners were just announced, ranging from a solar-powered accordion to an analog clock. What really caught my attention, however, was one of its three “Best Decorated Toy-Con” winners: a Legend of Zelda-inspired piano.
Customized with a variety of paper and clay materials, this piece boasts origami Silent Princess flowers, Divine Beast-themed sound knobs, and the Master Sword as an IR sticker.
“Each of these decorations fit snugly to the Labo piano and can be removed again if so desired,” Creator Chris Brazzell said on his contest entry page. “This way, you can constantly change the way your Nintendo Labo creations look.”
Although the idea of coming up with my own Labo inventions has never appealed to me personally, I can’t help but admire the creativity on display with each of these winners. There’s a childlike awe in seeing these fans’ imaginations run wild. Hopefully, the big N will announce more of these contests down the road, as I’d love to see just how far people can take Labo.
What do you think of this piano, though? Let us know in the comments below!
