Based on a premise by science fiction author René Barjavel and directed by J.K. Raymond-Millet, this eerily prescient French film from 1947 entitled ‘La télévision, œil de demain’ pretty much nails a vision of smartphones (and the risks of walking and driving while engrossed in them) while describing the evolution of TV into pocket sized devices.

Every night I go to bed thinking how I can help change the world and inspire people to love our beautiful wildlife and ecosystems! I’d legit take a bullet for any animal at any day and anytime that’s just how much I care for them ! Idk what kind of fire god set in my soul for animals but the love is deep and real ! I was placed on this earth for 1 thing and that’s exactly what I’ll do for the rest of my life ! Let’s all love one another and save the planet together as one ☝️ 🌎 @kodyantle TAG A ANIMAL LOVER ❤️

That’s you, that is.
With Samsung and LG set to release their own versions of this tech soon, Royole Corporation (formed in 2012 by Stanford University graduates) has just released the Flexpai – the world’s first folding smartphone.
Never mind the 16MP wide angle and 20MP telephoto cameras. Discount the not-even-officially-announced-yet Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150 processor. Forget that it runs Water OS on top of Android Pie.
Instead, feast your eyes on the 19.8cm flexi-screen that folds in half and picture yourself stuffing that fat, glowing wallet into your inside pocket with a half chewed Refresher wedged in the middle of it.
Yours from Royole for around €1,155.

I just found a large white Samsung smartphone lying face down at Herbert Road car park in Bray [County Wicklow]. Tyre track across the back, with a thin crack across the screen I’m afraid. Recent loss- battery at 80% and I can see the main user name. left my business card in with the uniform shop nearby, and will drop the phone in to Bray Garda station now.
Wishing you both a happy reunion.
Fair play in fairness
