Fortnite gets new downloadable paper masks and foldables for Halloween

Epic has released a new series of downloadable content based on its hit game Fortnite, enabling fans to print foldable projects for fun. Among other things, the new foldables include some masks based on popular Fortnite skins that kids can fold and then wear for the Halloween season’s costume parties and festivities.

Epic calls its new batch of downloadable content “Fortnitemares Papercraft Cosplay; the free mask projects include ones based on Meowscles, Fishstick, and Peely. The batch also includes mini foldables, as well, for making tiny figurines that can be collected or placed around as decoration.

The mini foldables include one based on Shadow Midas, Crimson Sanctum, and Kevin the Cube. All three options are rated as “very easy,” meaning young children should be able to cut out and assemble the figures with little or no help. Each download includes instructions on how to cut and fold the projects.

The downloadable content is available as PDFs; you’ll need a printer to share the content. Epic says the projects can be printed on A4 or US letter size paper, ideally cardstock, plus you’ll need scissors, glue or tape, a ruler, a thick sewing needle or folding bone, and string or an elastic band for the face masks.

Each printable project has instructions listed on the page. This isn’t the first time Epic has released free paper projects based on Fortnite characters. Players can still download the older options from Epic’s website, including the Wild Card Mask and Cluck mini-foldable.

Samsung Internet adds Video Flex mode for foldables, Web monetization

Although Chrome also has the market share in mobile, the browser market on smartphones is arguably more varied than on desktops. Some smartphone makers even have their own web browser, sometimes based on Chromium as well. Samsung is one of those and its self-named Samsung Internet browser just hit version 14, bringing a new feature for foldable phones as well as a way to make or send money on the Web.

One of the side benefits of a foldable phone is the ability to use two halves of the screen for different tasks without a significant loss in space. In addition to running two different apps side-by-side, however, there’s also the concept of splitting one app into two views or panels. Samsung calls this “Flex Mode” and it’s just one of the new features that Samsung Internet version 14 just added.

Earning money over the Internet is no longer an alien concept these days but it’s still a Wild West out there when it comes to such platforms. Coil is one such platform that enables payment microtransactions to websites and creators. Although not built into Samsung Internet, Coil is now available as a free add-on, though the service does require a $5 monthly subscription.

Samsung Internet also joins the growing number of web browsers implementing anti-tracking features. Samsung has so far not made any mention about supporting or blocking Google’s FLoC (Federated Learning of Cohorts) third-party tracking cookie replacement.

Version 14 adds the ability to pair two websites in Samsung’s App Pair edge panel feature exclusive to some Galaxy phones as well as the ability to handwrite a URL in the address bar, at least for phones with a stylus. Although it has Samsung in the name, Samsung Internet is actually compatible with many Android phones and has even been rated by some as one of the better web browsers on Android.
