What’s it look like? Why is it your favorite? Is it a classic that goes with anything, or is it something clever and fun? No matter what it is, it’s probably neither as clever or fun as this purse/backpack, which is modeled after a Japanese public telephone. It’s amassed quite the following in Japan, and it looks like it’d fly off the shelves if it happened to be mass produced.Twitter denizen Yu Ogasawara, Japanese leatherworker and woodcrafter, made the creation, but this is hardly the first time something she’s made has captured the attention of the public like this. It looks exactly like a downsized version of the actual public telephone, but it’s totally wearable, made out of durable genuine leather and built to look totally awesome and striking wherever you go.このタグにぴったりかと思いまして…実寸大公衆電話型リュックサック「こうきゅうでんわ」#女の価値を決めるバッグ pic.twitter.com/qqDX06O0S1— おがさわらゆう(他の作品も見て!) (@yutoyou_yty) April 10, 2018You can use it as a regular backpack, with the handset portion of the bag featuring enough space that it could store pencils and pens. The front panel is a nice little storage compartment for all your important things, with a smaller pocket inside for your phone and other items you want to keep safe. If you use headphones a lot with the bag, you can even pull the headphones cord through the coinslot.Best of all, the bag feels like a real phone booth. You can push the buttons, use the handset, and attach it back to the backpack which is held there by a pretty strong magnet. Of course, it’s not a functional phone, but there could probably be Bluetooth capabilities added to it to make it behave like one. That would be totally sick.What do you think of the awesome public phone bag? Would you rock it walking around the streets of your city?last_img read more

Nintendo Adds Labo VR Support to Mario and Zelda

first_imgStay on target ‘Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Was Final Mission From Late Nintendo President In just a few days Nintendo is about to give Switch owners their own way to hop on board the virtual reality bandwagon. The Nintendo Labo VR Kit lets players build their own headset and accessories out of cardboard and combine them with Switch hardware to make straight up magic. We recently got to try out the VR Kit and will have a full review coming soon. But right now we can say the games themselves are smaller experiences, like previous Labo kits.However, there’s nothing stopping VR from working with more substantial experiences either. And apparently Nintendo agrees because later this month Labo VR headset support is coming to the two biggest games on Nintendo Switch: Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.Experience 2 beloved games in new ways with the Toy-Con VR Goggles from the #NintendoLabo: VR Kit! https://t.co/be8xudP2PK pic.twitter.com/M0C6w59lIT— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) April 5, 2019Judging a VR game without seeing it in VR is tough but here’s what we think is going on here. Super Mario Odyssey adds a handful of VR minigames taken from the main campaign like collecting music notes or just exploring the various colorful kingdoms. It reminds us of other VR 3D platformers like Lucky’s Tale or Trover Saves The Universe. Fans of Super Mario 3D Land should also enjoy seeing Mario in 3D again. But really this makes us wish for Super Mario Odyssey DLC.The Zelda VR support is much more shocking however. Instead of a side mode this appears to be the entire adventure playable in VR in the vein of Skyrim or No Man’s Sky in VR. That sounds cool and impressive but the lo-fi nature of Labo VR hardware gives us pause. How will the framerate hold up? What about resolution? Are we expected to hold the Joy-Con up to our heads the whole time? How will this compare to this homebrew Zelda VR game on Switch?We won’t have to wait long to see how well VR gels with these AAA Nintendo experiences. Labo VR support comes to Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as a free update on April 25. But where’s the Virtual Boy Virtual Console you cowards!
