Design Ingenuity from New Zealand: Alchemy Equipment

The concept of alchemy likely conjures images of robe-wearing bearded outcasts toiling away in a cluttered workshop over illuminati-esque texts as they attempt (fruitlessly) to transfigure the everyday into the extraordinary. Building on the alchemic……

Samsung and Oculus are putting virtual reality to the test with the Gear VR

Samsung’s Gear VR is out today, putting virtual reality on the mass market in a way we haven’t seen since the Virtual Boy — although hopefully, this time, with more staying power. The Gear VR fits around a Galaxy Note 4 smartphone, magnifying the Note’s screen to create the illusion of presence. Carefully marketed as an “Innovator Edition,” it’s technically a beta product with no final version announced. Even so, it’s probably the most user-friendly headset available, and Samsung virtual reality VP Nick DiCarlo succinctly sums up the marketing pitch: “We’re very carefully trying to avoid overhyping this, but we think it’s going to be amazing.”

The Gear VR was built in partnership with Oculus, which has sold over 100,000 of its own Rift…

Samsung Black Friday 2014 deals include $99.99 Gear Fit, cheap Galaxy Tabs

Samsung’s taking a fairly unique approach to its Black Friday sale: pre-order a device now, skip the lines, and your credit or debit card won’t be charged on November 24th. The company is offering a slew of products that range from TVs to tablets to wearables and even SSD hard drives. Samsung says most orders placed before November 22nd should arrive in time for the holidays. But again, these prices won’t be changing or getting any lower — at least if you’re buying from Samsung — so there’s little point in waiting. We’ve collected some of the best deals below. If you don’t see the right price, be sure to click the label below. (You’ll see it underneath the price.)
