We visit Valve to go hands-on with the latest prototypes of the Steam Deck--the upcoming handheld gaming PC that will let you play PC games anywhere.

How Lightfield Displays Will Make Holograms Possible

Let's talk holograms! We test the new Lume Pad tablet with lightfield display--a glasses-free 3D technology that allows for quick switching between traditional 2D and holographic views.

Hands-On with the Framework Modular D-I-Y Laptop!

Remember when laptops had replaceable and upgradeable components? That's what a new company Framework is trying to bring back with their fully modular laptop design. We go hands-on with the laptop to take a look at its internal design and chat with CEO Nirav Patel about their D-I-Y approach to hardware and the plan to allow users to upgrade everything from battery to CPU instead of buying a completely new system.

Adventures in 3D-Printing: Lord of the Print

As part of our ongoing adventures in 3D printing, we're putting a spotlight on artists who design specifically for hobby printing in mind. We're starting off with the prolific Lord of the Print, whose Patreon release includes beautiful dragons and characters that are awesome at tabletop size or scaled much larger. Norm walks through his process to prep a godzilla model for printing, and tests a new wash and cure machine that can fit a kaiju-sized print!

Tested: ResinLapse 3D Printing on Elegoo Saturn!

We test the Elegoo Saturn resin mSLA 3D printer, and capture our test prints using a new time-lapse accessory developed by Uncle Jessy and Andrew Sink! ResinLapse is a clever way to synchronize a Canon DSLR's shutter to the exact moment each layer of your print is cured, producing mesmerizing time-lapse video that looks like a print is emerging smoothly out of resin vat. Norm shows how this works with the Elegoo Saturn and some considerations when 3D printing this way.
