SCOTTeVEST Travel Boxers keep your phone close to the family jewels

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on November 15th, 2010

We love our phones. We can’t live without them. But by now most of us know not to keep them next to our privates. Cellphone radiation may not turn people into the Incredible Hulk, but there is still cause to be careful. No one wants a low sperm count or, god forbid, a mutated beast with two heads down there. But apparently SCOTTeVEST doesn’t care about your junk.

Their Travel Boxers come with a little pouch located over your right leg, where it can hold a cell phone, MP3 player or other device. Not a great place for it.

Sadistic airlines eye even smaller seats for economy class

Posted in Aircraft by Shane McGlaun on September 13th, 2010

I am not a big fan of flying. Not because I am afraid the plane will crash or anything. I am afraid I will be stuck next to the 400-pound dude with a sweating problem. The last time I flew on a commercial flight that happened to me and it was a miserable three hours.

Apparently the airlines think we have too much room in those small seats. A company has unveiled new seats called SkyRider that look like a cross between a normal airline seat and a saddle. The seats give you only 23-inches of legroom.

The Weigh to go unit features Velcro straps and a lockable steel carabineer that prevents others from stealing it too. Weigh to go retails for $33, and will give you a reading of your luggage’s weight in both kgs or pounds after you lift it for a total of 5 seconds.

TrendNet offers world’s smallest travel router

Posted in Routers by Shane McGlaun on August 19th, 2009

tew-654tr-sbOne of the things that I often wished I had when I was traveling was a wireless router. The fact of the matter is that most wireless routers are so large that you can’t easily travel with them. TrendNet has unveiled a new wireless router designed for travel.

TrendNet has announced what it claims to be the world’s smallest travel router capable of 300Mbps speeds. The device is called the TEW-654TR and it measures in at a scant 2.5 x 3.25 x 0.75 inches. The device may be small but it offers the features you expect on a router including a reset button, power port, and a WAN port along with an LED display for status.

Mimo 710-S portable monitor

Posted in monitors by Conner Flynn on August 4th, 2009

Mimo 710-S portable monitorIf you’re in the market for a spare monitor, this is a nice looking one. The Mimo 710-S is the “Mobile Slider” edition of their existing line. It’s a 7-inch, 800×480 USB monitor that opens like a laptop and features 90 degree rotation so you can view it however you like.

Oddly this one costs just $20 more than the existing Mimo 710. So if portability is not an issue, you may as well go for the older model. The 710-S will be released this month for $150. It’s a pretty useful design. Just pop it in your laptop bag when traveling.

Sony announces titanium HD camcorder for travelers

Posted in Sony by Shane McGlaun on April 3rd, 2009

sonyhdrtg5v-sbCamcorders are one of the many electronics devices that tend to travel with people when they go on vacation. The problem is that travelling can be very hard on items like camcorders that have sensitive components. Camcorders ideal for travelling also tend to have small dimensions that are easy to store in a suitcase.

Sony has announced a new camcorder called the HDR-TG5V that is small and has a rugged frame made from titanium. The camera is a dead ringer for the Sony TG7VE we reported earlier this week. A quick look at the specs shows that the two machines are indeed similar under the skin as well.

Climbing UP Suitcase eases your burden

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on December 30th, 2008

Climbing UP Suitcase eases your burdenThough it’s just a concept for the moment, the Climbing UP suitcase designed by Woo Moonhyung makes dragging your suitcase around much easier. Especially on uneven surfaces or up stairs. Most suitcases use just a single set of wheels on the bottom, but not the Climbing UP suitcase. Instead, it has rubber belt tracks like a tank, along the length of it’s body.

It makes it much easier to pull your suitcase up stairs, and with the track along it’s entire length, it’s easier to handle from either side. It’s not motorized, but the design doesn’t add much weight. It just adds that extra little nudge to help you get a bit of a break.

Take Anywhere power source…everywhere

Posted in Chargers by Conner Flynn on August 13th, 2008

Take Anywhere power source…everywhereThe Take Anywhere Electrical Power Source does away with the need for a travel adapter. It features a rechargeable 10-amp battery with more than enough juice to power a laptop not for one hour, not for two, but for three hours. It will power a cell phone for 15 hours of talk time, and even an iPod nano several times supposedly.

As for size, it’s smaller than most briefcases and sports a few AC outlets, a DC outlet, USB port, and is even outfitted with an LED for a flashlight. The internal battery can hold a charge for up to three months so you don’t have to babysit this thing to make sure you’ll have juice. The device will retail for $199.95 and would be pretty handy for those who travel a lot.

Virgin Galactic unveils WhiteKnightTwo
The WhiteKnightTwo is the aircraft that will launch SpaceShipTwo into suborbital space. Today in the Mojave desert, those who are still dreaming the dream unveiled the top-secret craft. The craft’s first job is to serve as a flight simulator next month for pilots. Pilots that will shuttle citizens into space and usher in a new era of space travel. Assuming everything goes as planned, it should begin flight testing at the end of September. Except for the engines and landing gear, the entire craft is made from carbon fiber composite.

According to Virgin Galactic, both ships will be ready for their first flight together in 2009 or 2010. Fittingly, Richard Branson and his family will be the first onboard. The space flight lasts 2.5-hours with five minutes of weightlessness before the ship comes back to Earth.

TicketTime: boarding card & watch combo
If you’re sick and tired of resetting your watch to a different time zone each time you board a flight, TicketTime is here to help. TicketTime is a boarding card with an actual attached watch that’s preset to the time zone of your destination by the airline company.

All you have to do is tear off the watch and wear it around your wrist before getting on the plane. This concept was designed to eliminate one of the headaches of frequent flyers who often end up wearing the wrong time on their wrists. The watch doubles as your return flight ticket and is returned to the airline during check-in.
