The gray, long-nosed elephant Toy-Con looks like this. It looks like the other toy-cons are exceptionally distinctive, and all editors who were present to the question from Nintendo 'Which Toy-Con is most interested?' And pointing at elephant Toy-Con.

With Elephant Toy-Con, you can draw pictures in three dimensions on a campus in VR space.

The screen on the campus looks like this. While overlapping the paint drawn from the paint gun, I will draw a three-dimensional illustration along the theme. The illustration you drew can be viewed by multiple people through the TV screen by connecting the Nintendo Switch to the dock, and the drawing history is also saved so check 'How did you make this work?' can also do.

While moving the nose of the elephant that will be the paint gun, draw a trigger and draw a picture. When I looked at the campus on the 2D screen of the Switch itself instead of the goggles, I thought, 'Can you really do this for drawing?', But actually it would be messy and intuitive to put on and operate the VR goggles. In general, 3D paint, which is difficult to use and difficult to operate, can be drawn freely and freely, even without special experience.

The conventional VR controller is completely free of wireless connection, but often you can not know where you are holding your hand because you can not know the actual hand position by wearing a headset . However, with Elephant Toy-Con, a slight resistance from rubber provides a feeling of grasping the fine position and movement of the hand with the whole body, so it seems that finer movements are possible compared to conventional VR controllers. The

In Elephant Toy-Con, you can also play physics puzzles by manipulating tubes and pipes to complete missions. The puzzle that you solve while grasping the structure and state of the object is the content unique to VR.

So far, drawing in 3D has been difficult without professional knowledge, high-performance PC, expensive software, VR kit, but using elephant Toy-Con makes it easy for anyone, young or old, with old or new You can expect to be able to create 3D illustrations. The impact on the appearance was tremendous, but it was a huge elephant Toy-Con, but I felt the true nature of Nintendo, not only enabling a creative VR experience, but also showing the new form of a 3D pointing device.
