The New Nintendo 2DS XL is coming July 28 for $150 $50 cheaper than the New 3DS XL but quite a bit pricier than the original $80 2DS. SEE ALSO: Nintendo Switch is the No. 2 console on the market The most noticeable difference between the 2DS and the New 2DS XL is its new foldable clamshell design that looks more like 3DS systems compared to the wedge-like design of the 2DS.

Virtual reality as we know it today didn't exist in the 19th century, but what if it did? What if, alongside the monocles, pocket watches, and snuffboxes of proper gentlemen of the time, there existed, somehow, a fancy pants VR headset. You may officially turn your imagination off, because we found those VR goggles, and they are gloriously impractical yet compelling in their own hipster-using-a-vacuum-tube-phonograph way. SEE ALSO: Did Da Vinci Invent Google Glass? The 2VR Virtual Reality Headset is a foldable pair of spectacles designed to work with most 4- to 6-inch smartphones to allow you to view VR content on the go. Read more...

Rocket ships have something in common with UPS trucks: There are only so many packages you can fit in there. Hauling stuff into space is expensive, and it would be better if the things you needed to get up there could be folded up for transport, to make room for more stuff. At the same time, these foldable items need to be made from robust materials. Thus NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has been 3D printing metallic, chain-mail-like fabrics . "We call it '4-D printing' because we can print both the geometry and the function of these materials," said [NASA Systems Engineer Raul] Polit Casillas. "If 20th Century manufacturing was driven by mass production, then this is the mass production of functions." Fabricating spacecraft designs can be complex and costly, said Andrew Shapiro-Scharlotta of JPL, whose office funds research for early-stage technologies like the space fabric.

Foldable electric transportation was a new category for me and I was more than impressed with the 30-pound URB-E Sport GT motorized bike I got to play with at CES earlier this year.

In an effort to green their clean routines, some Apartment Therapy staffers are taking on small shifts at home, replacing their usual products and tools with more eco-friendly versions. I found out about Bee's Wrap at a friend's house last year. She'd brought home a loaf of bread wrapped in something she said was coated with beeswax. It was stiff-ish but foldable, and she told me they sold this waxy paper-fabric in various sizes, and that people used it instead of plastic bags and plastic wrap. I had enough plastic bags stuffed into my cabinets at the time to keep me and my food covered indefinitely (I still do), but I kept thinking about this mysterious wrap until I looked it up on the internet, bought some and started using it all the time.

Hover Camera Passport , a lightweight, personal drone-style camera from Zero Zero Robotics, is available on Apple's website and in Apple retail stores in the United States, Canada, China, Hong Kong, and the UK starting today. The Hover Camera Passport can be thought of as a sort of next-generation autonomous selfie stick that's able to follow you around and capture a hands-free photo whenever you wish. It's made from a lightweight (242 grams), foldable carbon fiber material so it packs down small and can go anywhere, and it's equipped with face tracking and body tracking so it knows who to follow. The drone travels up to 17 miles per hour and can hover for 10 minutes at up to 65 feet away, so it's able to track a user that's running, walking, biking, or engaging in other similar physical activities. There's a 13-megapixel camera built in, which can also capture 4K video.

Although its unlikely that youll be able to buy Samsungs long-rumored Galaxy X foldable phone this year, the company might make a few thousand prototypes, according to industry sources. Speaking to The Investor , they claim that Samsung is working on a device with a screen that can be folded 180 degrees outwards, consisting of two separate OLED displays with a hinge in the middle - so rather than the glass itself being foldable this sounds more like a modern take on the flip phone. Thats disappointing, but it sounds like this might just be the next step towards a truly foldable phone, with one of the anonymous sources saying Samsung seems to be testing the waters with the dual-screen device to gather ideas about its upcoming foldable phone. Folding into place Indeed, that lines up with previous rumors, as weve heard before that Samsung is working both on a dual-screen device that matches this description, and on a smartphone with a single flexible OLED screen, with the latter set to launch sometime after the dual-screen model.

However, since this is an SSD, it’s shrunk down and offers data transfer speeds of up to 515 MB/s. The My Passport SSD is more in touch with the times as well since it doesnt have the USB 3.0 Micro USB-B port like its siblings. It comes with a USB Type-C port and does ship with a USB Type-A adapter for those who dont have a device with a USB Type-C port.

If Samsung has started work on the S9s display panels thats apparently about 6 months earlier than usual. That doesn't come as a massive surprise, as many companies start work on their phones before one generation has even been announced, but it's good to get the rumors flowing already about the next Samsung phone. As soon as we hear anything else about the Samsung Galaxy S9 we'll be sure to tell you. Samsung Galaxy S9: what we want to see The Samsung Galaxy S8 isn't officially out in the wild yet, but we've had a brainstorm about the new improvements we'd like to see on the Galaxy S9. 1. A foldable screen Rumors of the Samsung Galaxy X - a phone with a foldable display - have been building for the past few years. A Samsung executive has told the media that the company doesn't plan to launch a fully foldable phone until at least 2019, but plans may change in the coming months.

Aft of the bodywork, the petrol engines have been tweaked, too: the familiar 2.0-litre TSI now sporting an additional 10bhp in standard format, and 242bhp in a forthcoming 245 edition.At 227bhp, the entry-level vRS keeps pace with the alterations recently made to the basic Golf GTI, which will be of interest to the minority of buyers who opted for the petrol variant. Most British owners though picked the diesel variant – and while the 181bhp 2.0-litre TDI remains unchanged, there’s now the choice of twinning it with all-wheel drive for the first time; an option not available to buyers of the mechanically similar Golf GTD.Given the Octavia’s sterling reputation for usability, the combination feels a natural fit. Along with it comes the updates already made familiar as part of the wider revisions: i.e. new infotainment systems with capacitive screens, a raft of new safety systems, the availability of trailer assist and adaptive cruise, and the introduction of more ‘Simply Cleverfeatures, such as foldable tables on the seatbacks, more power sockets and the always welcome heated steering wheel.
