If you were watching the Nintendo Switch presentation last week, you likely saw a bizarre section in which Nintendo's General Producer Yoshiaki Koizumi became briefly obsessed with the number of ice cubes you can fit in a glass at any given time.

The reason for this quixotic segment was to introduce the HD Rumble, the joycon's haptic feedback vibration system. This technology has many potential applications including, apparently, milking a virtual cow; which is what Chris and I ended up doing at the Nintendo Switch hands-on event.

You can watch us get to grips with Milk, one of the minigames included in launch title 1-2 Switch, in the video below. I won't say it necessarily makes for comfortable viewing, but at least you aren't having to maintain eye contact with somebody while manipulating a pretend teat.

This is normally the bit where I try to type another sentence or two about the video and then ask you to share your thoughts in the comments below, but to be honest I think the sooner we put this sordid episode behind us the better.
