Watch Bill Nye the Science Guy Make Magic with Nintendo Labo

Bill! Bill! Bill! Bill! Sing along!

Nintendo Labo is upon us today, the whole new way to play with cardboard and your Nintendo Switch. It's gotten enough fanfare on its own as a way to help kids and adults learn a little more about building and playing with their own creations, but what better way to get the word out about the game and playsets than recruiting one of the coolest science guys around?

Bill Nye took Nintendo Labo for a test drive, spending time with Nintendo employees tinkering with the Toy-Con Garage and putting his own toys together. You can watch his experience in the video below, and let the nostalgia wash over you in waves, just like your teacher had rolled the TV out for the day and announced that it was a "Bill Nye day." 

Bill Nye is the first of several high-profile individuals and "social media influencers" as well as Nintendo employees who will submit Toy-Con Garage inventions to the official Nintendo Labo site. You'll be able to send in your own, too, starting today. You need to live in the U.S. or Canada and be at least 13 years of age or older if you want to participate.

You'll be entering your creations into a limited-time Nintendo Labo Creator Contest for the chance to take home a prize package, including a Nintendo Labo kit, special jacket, and a certificate. Head over here for further details.

What are you waiting for? Start tinkering!
