The new Nintendo Labo Kits just shipped and we're borrowing Karsten Bondy's kids Zak and Alex to test out the cardboard DIY kits that work with the Switch console.

Jason tries on a motion-capture suit that does not require cameras to capture his body's actions. The Xsens system uses wearable sensors.

In Call for Help, we'll talk smartphone cameras versus stand-alone cameras. And we bring an expert, Rishi Sanyal from, to join the conversation.
