Gizmag spends a bit of time with the New Nintendo 3DS XL (Photo: Simon Crisp/Gizmag.com)

When we saw the glasses-free 3D of the original Nintendo 3DS back in 2011, we were suitably impressed, and then promptly disappointed when the effect kept breaking and left us suffering headaches. Now, Nintendo is back with the New Nintendo 3DS consoles which promise to fix that with super-steady 3D, while also offering a power upgrade and better controls. Gizmag recently spent a week with the XL version of the new portable console, to see if it's worthy of your gaming thumbs.  Read More

Any company that's been making lenses for 169 years is probably good at adapting. So perhaps it makes sense that German company Carl Zeiss AG (better known today simply as "Zeiss") didn't waste time jumping into the new frontier of virtual reality. Gizmag has been playing with the company's VR One headset for the iPhone 6 – read on for our review.  Read More

2015 Zero SR: extra torque spells caution on bumpy corners and loose surfaces (Photo: Joe ...

After spending a full morning with the 2015 Zero S and DS on the gorgeous, twisty roads of California, and tucking into a Kawasaki burger for lunch at Alice's, it was time to ride the jewel in Zero's crown: the 2015 Zero SR. While it stops short of all-out sportsbike performance, the SR still unleashes more torque than any petrol-powered superbike you can buy. Enough, as it turns out, to catch an experienced motorcycle tester by surprise. Enjoy the last of our 2015 Zero fleet reviews.  Read More

Having become acquainted with the tiny but mighty Zero FX, and struggled through a thorough technology briefing at the Zero factory, it was time to try the "base models" of the 2015 Zero range. The Zero S (streetbike) and Zero DS (dual sport) both share the same platform in terms of frame, motor and the giant monolith battery pack. And despite the fact that they're significantly down on power and torque compared to the high-performance Zero SR, this pair of electrics offer a surprisingly good time.  Read More

Following on from last week's fascinating Zero factory tour, this week it's time to ride the Zero electric motorcycle fleet, starting with the smallest, lightest, least powerful, cheapest and lowest range bike in the 2015 lineup – the FX. But don't let the specs fool you – this little fella packs quite a punch. In fact it's probably even more fun around town than the mighty Zero SR that blew our minds last year.  Read More

The Durabook R11 is dust, shock and splash-proof (Photo: Eric Mack/Gizmag.com)

It wasn't long ago that bringing a rugged PC along literally required lugging a rigid office-in-a-suitcase sort of setup into the field. But new systems like the Durabook R11 from GammaTech combine touchscreens and the trend towards smaller, lighter and thinner devices into a much more portable package.  Read More
