Inventor Uses Nintendo Labo To Control An Electric Wheelchair

Inventor Uses Nintendo Labo To Control An Electric Wheelchair

When the Nintendo Labo was unveiled, Nintendo also showed off various kits and things that users could do with it, such as building their own robots and what not. However it appears that some have taken the Labo and made practical use of it, such as in the case of Kentaro Yoshifuji of Ory Laboratory who used the Labo to control an electric wheelchair.

Yoshifuji has apparently been interested in electric wheelchair technology ever since he was in high school, where he has been working on tech for the mobility device. His latest creation is for a 13-year old who requires a wheelchair to get around due to a heart condition. With the use of the Labo, he created a steering wheel of sorts that allowed the teen to steer himself around using the Switch.

Nikon's redesigned SnapBridge app adds full manual camera control and 'intuitive' UI

Nikon just released a new version of its camera connectivity app SnapBridge. The new SnapBridge Version 2.0—which is available for both iOS and Android devices starting today—has been redesigned with an easier-to-use interface and a bunch of new features like the ability to register up to five devices, and full-manual control of select cameras.

On the UI side, both the screen design and the menu structure have been updated to be 'more intuitive' and offer direct access to Help functions. The app has also now been equipped with a 'power saving mode' that keeps SnapBridge from draining your smartphone or tablet's battery when you're not connected to a camera (i.e. when it's not in use).
