Chi-Chi’s Foldable Tortillas Let You Make Burritos Or Sandwiches Like A Pro

foldables-1590965166.jpgcrop1xw0.8876404494382022xhcentertopresize1200.jpeg
We've all seen it happen. No matter how many gazillions of burritos go through the assembly line at Chipotle unscathed, one inevitably won't make it past the folding stage without falling apart. Making burritos is an art form, and you have to weigh the ratio of the fillings against the size of the tortilla before you go in for the fold. But what if the perfect shape for a tortilla isn't actually a circle? Chi Chi's just launched a new tortilla with four round edges, which are designed to perfectly fold into a symmetrical square. Called Foldables, these flour tortillas

Pro Putt by Topgolf review: more realistic than real Topgolf

Screen_Shot_2020_05_28_at_20.46.20.png
Many VR games are about portraying impossible exaggerated versions of reality, whether it’s sci-fi table tennis or a shooting range with actual zombies. The new Topgolf-branded Oculus Quest game, however, goes in another direction: it’s actually more like real golf than Topgolf. If you haven’t been to Topgolf before, it’s kind of what can be expected out of a VR golf game, only for real. You’re basically in a bar with a massive driving range, and you’re whacking microchipped balls at far-off colorful targets. Topgolf’s technology tracks the balls on video screens so you can see how accurate your shots

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf issued a new guidance Wednesday permitting the play and practice of professional sports in counties that are under the yellow and/or green phase of reopening.But that doesn't mean every professional team in the state can start gathering right away.Located in Allegheny County, which currently is "yellow," the Pittsburgh Steelers would be allowed by local laws to practice once the NFL permits. But the Eagles, located in the "red" Philadelphia region, would not be allowed until their county moves to "yellow" on June 5.The Pittsburgh Penguins and Pittsburgh Pirates would be allowed to resume practice and play

Razer’s new Blade Pro 17 has a 300Hz display option

Blade_Pro_17__2020__Key_Visual.png
Razer has announced the 2020 version of its Blade Pro 17. Like last year’s model, there is a 4K 120Hz touch display option for creative professionals. But Razer has upgraded the gaming-focused display option to a 300Hz 1080p panel. Razer says the 4K screen will cover 100 percent of the Adobe RGB space, and the 1080p display comes with a glare-reducing matte finish. Specs don’t look too different from last year’s Blade Pro 17, but the new model has been bumped up to the newest generation of mobile processors from Intel and GPUs from Nvidia. Razer says they’ll make the

What it Would Take to Beat Regan Smith for Pro Swim Series Title

Regan-Smith-by-Mike-Lewis-D85_6102-640×427.jpg
The 2020 Pro Swim Series isn’t even half over, but the race for the women’s title might as well be. With Regan Smith‘s absurd speed in Knoxville, it’s going to take an otherworldly swim to knock her off the top of the current standings. For the second season, the Pro Swim Series doesn’t give out its $10,000 series winner prizes based on cumulative points. This year, as it was last year, the winner will be determined by the single best swim (in FINA points) of the entire series. FINA points attempt to compare swims in different events by creating a points

The iPad Pro can now run Fortnite at 120 frames per second

Fortnite_20180919160311.jpg
Epic Games has just released an update for the iOS version of Fortnite that unlocks a niche-but-cool feature if you have the hardware to support it: a 120 frames per second mode for the latest (2018) iPad Pro. This mode makes the most of the screen’s high refresh rate to deliver ultra-smooth performance. The update also adds support for controller thumbstick buttons. I checked the 120 fps mode out for a few rounds, and while I’m not sure how many people play competitive Fortnite on an iPad, the difference is noticeable. The frame rate does occasionally drop down into the
