Nintendo has shared a new Nintendo Labo video, in which they explore how the IR Motion Camera works that’s found on the right Joy-Con.

It also continues to look at how you can use Toy-Con Garage to invent new ways to play, which, in this latest example, sees the RC Car turned into an RC Tank.

This uses IR Marker placed on a monster that, once detected, will see the Joy-Con on its back vibrate to make it fall over. There’s then the chance to add sound effects, or you can create a cut-out sign that will light up on the Nintendo Switch screen.

Nintendo Labo will release across North America on April 20th and in Europe on April 27th, with two kits: the Variety Kit and the Robot Kit. Each will contain the building materials and the Nintendo Switch game required to bring your Toy-Con to life.
