The German automaker firmly believes that hydrogen fuel cell technology can replace internal combustion engines, plug-in hybrids (PHEVs), and battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) as the future of mobility.

2022 BMW 2-Series Coupe fully unveiled wearing digital camouflage

The 2022 BMW 2-Series Coupe is arriving this fall, and we couldn’t be more excited. Despite the presence of BMW’s front-wheel driven 2-Series Gran Coupe, the two-door Coupe version will still come with a standard rear-wheel drivetrain (with available AWD) motivated by either a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four or a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six motor.

3Doodler Pro+ Review – An upgrade, not for all

The 3Doodler Pro+ is a 3D printing pen. It's very similar to the first several 3Doodler devices, all of which are still very capable tools. The 3Doodler Pro+ tweaks the abilities of the otherwise most advanced 3Doodler 3D printing pen, refining the experience with new materials, new pen tips, and a more sleek industrial design.

2021 Hyundai Elantra N First Drive Review: Worthy of Praise

2021 Hyundai Elantra N First Drive Review: Worthy of Praise

I spent less than an hour driving the 2021 Hyundai Elantra N. And even though my test driver is essentially a pre-production prototype, it’s evident Hyundai has created a highly desirable rendition of its all-new, seventh-gen Elantra compact sedan. “The N concept was born out of the passion of Hyundai’s talented engineers at our research and development headquarters in Nanyang, South Korea,” said Olabisi Boyle, vice president of Product Planning Mobility strategy, Hyundai North America. “Our goal is to get the hearts of our customers racing and keep them there. We want them to feel thrilling performance measured in beats per minute, in cars that are truly fun to drive.”

E Ink’s folding, note taking ereader looks like an e-paper Surface Duo

E Ink’s folding, note taking ereader looks like an e-paper Surface Duo

After seeing it earlier in the summer, we're checking back in with E Ink's folding, dual-screen ePaper display today. The model we saw back in June was clearly a very early prototype, with a less than stellar hinge and labels for non-existent buttons. It seems that E Ink has fixed many of those missing or unfinished features, but we probably won't see this exact device hit the market.

Pixel 5 prototype leak is sending shivers down the Internet’s spine

Pixel 5 prototype leak is sending shivers down the Internet’s spine

Google has always been accused of trying to copy Apple but there are cases when that can actually be a good thing. For a time, it seemed that the tech giant has finally come across its own confident aesthetic identity, one that fans of both software and hardware products can be proud of. Then along came the Pixel 4, which seemed to throw a wrench in that theory. And just when you thought the worst is over, here comes a first glance at what could be the Pixel 5.

TCL foldable phone prototype dares to dream big with two folds

TCL foldable phone prototype dares to dream big with two folds

As much as foldable phones are a hot topic, they're also almost impossible to get perfect. Even without considering the fragility of the foldable screens themselves, two (or three) of the existing implementations have their respective drawbacks, like the Galaxy Fold's need for a smaller external screen or both its and the Huawei Mate X's square-ish unfolded shape. TCL is aiming to solve exactly those problems by adding one more hinge that could, of course, also be one more point for failure.

Google Area 120 creates a Game Builder that feels like a game itself

Google Area 120 creates a Game Builder that feels like a game itself

Anyone who has played a video game may have had one or both of two thoughts. Either they think they can do one better or they get inspired to create their own. Unfortunately, many of those ideas remain just that, ideas, because of the high entry to barrier in game development. Even game engines like Unity have a steep learning curve, especially for those starting completely from scratch. Google's skunkworks arm Area 120 is rising to the challenge with Game Builder, a prototype "multiplayer" game maker that requires no previous knowledge at all.

Apple W.A.L.T. Telephone Mac from 1993 finally seen in action

Apple W.A.L.T. Telephone Mac from 1993 finally seen in action

MacBook users today who wish their notebooks had touchscreens are probably repeatedly told that Apple just doesn't do touchscreens on a Mac. But more than three decades ago, it almost did. Of course, the technology back then meant it would be a resistive touch screen that required a stylus, ironically, but it was still a huge change of direction for Apple. Sadly, the W.A.L.T., short for "Wizzy Active Lifestyle Telephone", never came to be. Fortunately, now we a video of a working prototype that reveals Apple's almost prophetic vision.

Xiaomi double folding phone could steal Samsung’s thunder

Xiaomi double folding phone could steal Samsung’s thunder

2019 is not only the year of punch hole camera cutouts, it could also be the year of the foldable phones. Of course, not all OEMs will be able to jump on that trend, unlike with cutouts, but those that do will be racing for the best possible foldable design. Samsung’s way is, of course, just one and it seems that Xiaomi already has its own version in the works. And if it manages to pull it off, it could very well steal the spotlight. Especially if it comes with the company’s usual pricing strategy.

It's hard to make a 5G demo sexy, unless you're the sort of person who gets shivers from watching numbers on speed tests.
