The HTC Vive isn't limited to perfectly square rooms — Until now, little has been said about what the Vive's setup process will be like when it goes on sale. (For the record, "Vive Pre" is still a pre-release name.) But in my interview, Associate Vice President Raymond Pao gave a little more insight into how this will work.

iPad Air 3 drawing hints at a smaller iPad Pro — Alas, as with all things in life, there is a slight trade-off with these extra goodies. If the dimensions listed here are to be trusted, then it appears that the iPad Air 3 will be 0.05 mm thicker and 0.1 mm wider than its predecessor.

Two major visual effects studios join forces for VR push — The acquisition is probably a timely rescue for Tse's Post Production. Back in September, the company had to reduce its workforce in Hong Kong to focus on its more lucrative business in Mainland China, according to Apple Daily .

Tesla wants a factory in China, and fast — To date, Tesla has set up 15 stores in seven major cities in Greater China, over 340 Superchargers and over 1,600 destination chargers. Hong Kong in particular has 42 Superchargers, making it the city with the highest density of Tesla's rapid charging stations; this is on top of the 75 destination chargers there.

Calorie counting made easier with this pretty lunch box — The Prepd Pack itself consists of a case with a stylish wooden cover that doubles as an eating mat, and this houses modular containers of different sizes to allow multiple configurations, along with magnetic silverware that can be tucked into the middle of the mat.

Adobe 开始计划把 Creative Cloud 带到中国

In China, you can get a metallic smartphone for just $100 — Why yes, here's yet another dirt cheap Chinese smartphone from none other than Xiaomi. The Redmi 3 is the company's latest budget device that costs just 699 yuan (about $107) off contract, which is pretty good considering it comes with a metallic body, a generous 4,100 mAh battery, infrared remote feature and a secondary Nano SIM slot (can switch to 4G via software) that doubles as a microSD slot (up to 128GB).

Xiaomi's Redmi 3 has a 5” (720p) display and a 4,100 mAh battery. All for $106.

DokiWatch lets kids make video calls and share their location — Other specs include a 1.3GHz dual-Cortex-A7 processor from MediaTek (MT6627), 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, IP67 rating for dustproofing and waterproofing, and a 600 mAh battery which should require daily charging. Oh, and it runs on Android 4.4 and will receive firmware updates in the future.

T-Mobile's first Windows 10 Mobile phone is big and cheap — Say whatever you want about Windows 10 Mobile, but the folks over at T-Mobile reckon there's still a demand for this relatively niche player, which is why it's partnered with Alcatel OneTouch to deliver something cheap and cheerful to begin with.

ASUS offers yet another curved monitor plus a 4K display — If you're looking for something totally wacky, though, then check out ASUS' yet-to-be-named 34-inch curved IPS monitor with UWQHD (3440 x 1440) resolution, which should make certain games a whole lot more fun. In fact, speaking of which, we wouldn't be surprised if this is the same panel as the one on ASUS' ROG Swift PG348Q gaming monitor announced at the most recent IFA.
