Would you pay $160 for Nintendo Cardboard?

Nintendo recently announced their newest product called The Nintendo Labo.  Nintendo Labo has a simple formula: Make. Play. Discover.  All for $160 and some cardboard.

Nintendo Labo combines the magic of Nintendo Switch with the fun of DIY creations.  You are given instructions on making a 13-key piano, fishing rod, or other tools then while using your Switch remote; you can play interactive games.  It’s an interesting concept that no company has really created yet.  And we can depend on Nintendo for innovative ideas.

However, $160 price tag for cardboard seems a bit much by any standard.  You can buy an entirely new Nintendo system (used) for that amount of money.  It’s the biggest scam purchasing something like that now.  Cardboard as an inexpensive material.

What do you think about the Nintendo Labo?

I hope you realize you are not paying for the cardboard as a material but for the innovative concept and idea. Everything new and never-done-before is going to cost extra for that exact reason. Also, the price is not $160, but $70 and $80 for two separate kits and nobody forces you to buy both for total $160.
So is it expensive? yes. Is it innovative? also yes.
