Louis Vuitton put screens on their iconic bags because why not

Literally seeing the future

Published

on

Not the type to shy away from all things extra, Louis Vuitton has decided that the future of fashion entails screens on designer bags.

Unveiled at the Cruise 2020 collection show held at JFK’s TWA Flight Center last week, the prototypes aptly titled “Canvass of the Future” featured flexible screens on classic LV bags.

Two bags were shown off on the runway with flashing screens — the ultimate high-tech arm candy.

Now, dear reader, if you’re an avid follower of the folding screen trend, you’d know that this isn’t the first time we’re seeing those screens on a purse. Early this year at CES, we saw this purse from Royale — the same brand responsible for the very first functioning folding smartphone.

It comes as no surprise then that the same screens are used on the Louis Vuitton bags.

Here’s a closer look at the two-paneled Speedy in all its AMOLED screen glory.

As of now, there is no news on other functionalities, although some on social media have claimed that there are touchscreen capabilities on the bags. Pricing also hasn’t been unveiled although you can bet your bottom dollar it won’t be cheap as LV bags and flexy screens, on their own, can both fetch a pretty penny individually.

CRUISE 2020 by @nicolasghesquiere Here are the other bags from the show. The Skyscraper bags are cute. Also, here’s the other *touchscreen* bag. One in the front, on in the back. So it’s pretty much just 2 iPads glued on to a Bent Box it seems. Shout out to the girl @vickyyzzzz for pulling through ♥ ⁣• • •⁣ ⁣#louisvuitton #lvmen #louisvuittonlover #lv #monogram #dlouisv #luxury #highend #highendfashion #fashion #louisvuittonjapan #lvsingapore #louisvuittonmalaysia #ルイヴィトン #louisvuittonparis #louisvuittonbags #louisvuittonph #lv2019⁣ #lv2020 #lvcruise20 #lvcruise #nicolasghesquiere ⁣⁣ ⁣Prices and information are all subject to change and should be treated as estimates and guesses.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for “fair use” for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Copyright © 2018 by LOUIS VUITTON⁣ ⁣All rights reserved.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣We are not affiliated, associated, authorised, endorsed by, or in any way officially connected with Louis Vuitton Malletier, or any of its subsidiaries or its affiliates.

One thing is for sure, though: The future of handbags is bright — well, as bright as the AMOLED screens.

The instax mini Link lets you print photos from your smartphone

Time to print your Instagram photos!

Published

on

Earlier, Fujifilm has just launched a worldwide campaign with the catchphrase “Don’t just take, give.” The aim of the campaign is to encourage users to share their prints with loved ones.

 

Following up on the campaign, the Japanese company announces the launch of instax mini Link, a portable, compact printer of Instax photos.

The instax mini Link lets you transfer photos from your smartphone through a dedicated app via Bluetooth connection. The app lets you do basic editing such as rotating, adjusting brightness, and the application of a filter. The printer prints quickly, with an average speed of about 12 seconds.

Additionally, it supports continuous printing up to 100 pictures on a single charge. If you’re feeling creative, the dedicated app has a variety of frame designs and collage layouts for your prints.

Lots of fun features for you to enjoy

It has fun features such as “Video Print” function which lets you scroll through video frames, allowing you to choose the best moment to print. There’s also “Match Test” which examines your compatibility with a friend or someone special. The results are shown after the picture is printed.

To see the results, you must perform a “Quick Diagnosis” or use the “Precision Diagnosis” function, which involves a question and answer portion.

On the other hand, the instax mini Link isn’t just for one person to enjoy. Through “Party Print,” the device can connect up to five smartphones to the app.

The printer can receive pictures from each device to combine into one instax print. There’s also a “Surprise Mode” where no one knows the photos that were sent and what the final print would look like.

More than just a smartphone printer

The instax mini Link has a built-in sensor, too. You can use it as a remote control for your smartphone’s camera, and print multiple copies through the printer’s button at the center.

On the flip side, it’s not just smartphones that can connect with the printer. Through the Fujifilm Camera Remote app, the printer can receive pictures directly from Fujifilm’s digital cameras.

The Fujifilm instax mini Link is priced at PhP 6,999 (US$ 135). It will be available in three colors: Ash White, Dusky Pink, and Dark Denim.

Unboxing the Galaxy A80 BLACKPINK Edition

It’s not the BLACKPINK accessories we’ve seen before

Published

on

Earlier this year, Samsung showcased the Galaxy A80 in Bangkok, Thailand. Adding more to their surprise, popular K-Pop girl group BLACKPINK performed on stage. Right after the event, we’ve seen BLACKPINK merchandise and accessories to spruce up your phone.

A few months later, rumors circulated about a special edition of Galaxy A80. This proved to be true when BLACKPINK unboxed their own Galaxy A80 BLACKPINK Edition. Finally arriving in more countries (and in our hands), we’ve finally unboxed this fabulous limited edition box.

Originally, this bundle came in a plain, boring black box. When you open it, you’ll first see BLACKPINK’s Kill This Love album in the flesh, containing a photo book, CD, sticker set, random photo cards, and more. Then, you’ll be greeted with another black box containing the real BLACKPINK Special Edition box… in pink.

You can see its logo placed in an emblem in the middle, surrounded by an intricately-detailed color-shifting design depending on the viewing angle.

When you open the box, you’ll be greeted with signatures from your favorite girls. You’ll also see a double-decked tray containing the Galaxy A80, Galaxy Buds, and Galaxy Watch Active.

The box indeed felt special. The tray holding the boxes for the phone, buds, and the watch is placed in a subtle-looking pink gradient.

Taking everything out of the box, the whole set is a treat for Blinks. Who wouldn’t want to use a BLACKPINK-themed smartphone, earbuds, and smartwatch?

Galaxy A80

Of course, the phone is your usual Samsung Galaxy A80, only made better by the black and pink motif.

But it’s not the only thing that makes this phone special. The Galaxy A80 BLACKPINK Edition contains exclusive themes and stickers that will surely delight your senses. Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa will always be on your hands to greet you, whenever you pick up your phone.

Galaxy Watch Active

The Galaxy Watch Active, on the other hand, comes in black with a pink strap. When you turn it on, BLACKPINK’s logo will show up. Its interface and watch face comes in black and pink, as well.

If you’re concerned with your #OOTD, make sure to wear black and pair both the smartwatch and the buds as an accessory.

Galaxy Buds

Among the three, the Galaxy Buds is my favorite. It’s hard not to love it when it’s looking sleek in black with a printed BLACKPINK logo in pink and a subtle, glossy Samsung logo.

When you pop it open, it’s even more amazing. While the exterior is black and tough-looking, the interior is pink. It’s just like how we always put up a strong facade, but we’re actually softies on the inside. Of course, the Galaxy Buds has the usual black and pink combination.

It fits nicely in your ear and produces amazing sound. Additionally, the buds are worth flaunting. It’s just beautiful!

 

Is this your GadgetMatch?

While it’s just the usual Galaxy A80, Galaxy Buds, and Galaxy Watch Active painted with BLACKPINK all over, this is definitely a Blink’s GadgetMatch.

It has a powerful smartphone with a rotating camera and accessories like the Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Buds that lets them stay connected and play BLACKPINK’s music to their heart’s content.

For only PhP 49,990 (US$ 967), it’s a tad expensive but fans won’t surely mind the price. After all, we all love to shell out money for something that we love, and it’s a price we’re willing to pay no matter how much it cost.
