UPDATED: At IFA, the Honor Magic V2 Impressed As the V Purse Concept Raised Eyebrows and Questions

During their keynote titled “Unfold Tomorrow,” CEO George Zhao introduced the Honor Magic V2 as the brand’s slimmest and lightest inward-foldable smartphone. Not content to announce only one impressive new foldable at IFA, Zhao then segued to the Honor V Purse. This outward-foldable smartphone concept was described as blurring the lines between technology and fashion. While the Magic V2 seems like the natural progression for Honor’s foldable line, the V Purse concept (if ever made) will be a tougher sell that begs answers to many immediate questions.

NIU KQi Air and KQi Air X Carbon Fiber Electric Scooters Will Make Commuting with Your Scooter Easier to Manage

Most electric scooters offer the same experience; you get on, ride, and, assuming the motor is powerful enough, you can easily zip around during your commute. But what if part of getting to work means carrying your scooter onto a bus or subway or inside the office once you’ve arrived? With most scooters weighing up to 60 pounds, that can be tricky. But the 700W NIU KQi Air series offers something that should help; each of the two new models has a carbon fiber frame, weighing under 27 pounds.




Withings ScanWatch 2 and ScanWatch Light Will Offer Even More Exceptional Health Tracking Options

One of the best smartwatches I’ve ever used is the 43mm Withings ScanWatch; it tracks my sleep, steps, heart rate, SpO2, ECG, and much more. I rely on it so much that it only leaves my wrist for recharging about once a month. All that to say, I didn’t think there was much room or need for improvement, but of course, Withings has found a way. They’ve just introduced their second generation of ScanWatch, including the flagship Withings ScanWatch 2 and the attractively priced ScanWatch Light. Let’s take a look at these new watches and the features that they’ll offer.

In 2023, the company is expanding its focus to encompass residential energy solutions. Their latest innovation, the EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra, is being unveiled at ShowStoppers during IFA.


CASETiFY Ultra Bounce Case Will Offer 32-Feet of Ultimate Drop Protection and More!

According to CASETiFY’s internal research, over 90% of screen cracks happen when the smartphone hits its corner during a fall. To combat that, they’re introducing what they say may be the most protective phone case, the CASETiFY Ultra Bounce Case. Not only can it handle being dropped from up to 32′, but it also sports 10X Military Grade Standard (MIL-STD 810G 516.7) shock protection, and it can be personalized.


The XGIMI HORIZON Ultra Offers 4K Long-Throw Projection, Dolby Vision, and More Features Than You’d Think Possible for Under $1700

If you’ve considered upgrading your home theater setup and want the most bang for your buck, the new flagship 4K XGIMI HORIZON Ultra should pique your interest. It’s the world’s first and only long-throw home projector sporting Dolby Vision. The HORIZON Ultra sports a hybrid laser and LED system, which are hardware-level computing optics usually only seen on luxury projectors costing thousands of dollars; it also offers low-latency gaming modes, and it doesn’t look like the usual box that you’d want to hide somewhere — because it’s not ugly!




Urbanista Malibu Is an IP67 Dust and Waterproof, Light-Powered Speaker Ready for Outdoor Fun

How often have you been at the lake or pool while enjoying good music and great company, only to have the battery on your portable speaker die or for someone to drip all over your speaker? With the Urbanista Malibu, neither of these problems would be an issue; not only is it IP67 waterproof and protected against sand, dust, and dirt, but it uses integrated Powerfoyle solar cell technology, so it can self-charge any time it is exposed to indoor or outdoor light! The sustainability doesn’t end there; the Urbanista Malibu is made from recycled plastic and fabrics!

Lenovo Glasses T1 Create a Comfortable, Wearable, Private Display

On the 9-hour flight from DFW to LHR Monday, I had a young child sitting next to me on the plane. Flipping through the available movies, I realized that the few that caught my interest might be too violent and slightly inappropriate for the little guy sitting next to me, so I read instead. However, if I had had the Lenovo Glasses T1, I could have privately enjoyed any movie I wanted without worrying about whether the action or images were appropriate for my seatmate.



16″ Lenovo Next-Gen ThinkPad X1 Fold Looks Like It Could Be a Road Warrior’s Best Friend

As much as I appreciate and enjoy using the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4’s expansive 16″ display, traveling with such an unwieldy laptop isn’t always easy, much less ideal. The X1 Extreme is almost impossible to use in tighter spaces (i.e., airline economy seats); a 14″ or smaller travel laptop makes more sense. Still, I struggle to recreate the same productivity I enjoy on the X1 Extreme when using something smaller for all but the most basic tasks. The just-announced Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold appears to be my perfect solution. Check this out.
