Life is good, but it's even better to live well. This phrase is really fair, and most importantly relevant to the holidays. I want to rest for a full, not paying attention to various household trivia. An uncomfortable suitcase, problems with luggage, the inability to relax on the road – all this, unfortunately, is familiar to almost every traveler.
If you approach the issue responsibly, then some of the problems can be solved even before leaving your apartment. Different companies over the past few years have created a lot of things that can be useful not only for the geek. Today in the collection of exactly these things.
The history of the suitcase Bluesmart began back in 2014, when its creators launched a campaign for IndieGoGO and just a month raised $ 2,261,662 (!). The BBC called it "an iPhone among suitcases." Finally, Bluesmart got to Russia.
The suitcase has every right to be called "clever", it is equipped with many useful trifles, which you can appreciate in any trip or travel. The point here is not so much in design as in functionality.
Bluesmart is equipped with two USB-ports, from which you can charge your devices (capacity 10 400 mAh). It has a sensor weight sensor that allows you to know the weight of the baggage without exerting any effort. This function should be appreciated by air travelers, each extra kilogram for which can turn out to be a big expense.
The suitcase lock is managed remotely, it is blocked if the phone with the preinstalled application is removed a certain distance. There is also a 3G / GPS-navigator, thanks to which the user can always be aware of exactly where his baggage is.
Ergonomics Bluesmart is also at a height, inside the suitcase is quite spacious, there you can put a lot of luggage. As for the application, it supports iOS and Android. The connection is via Bluetooth.
MK3 from R2GEAR
The MK3 gadget is a new development from the company R2GEAR, which has tried to make the most versatile device for travelers. Here, the functions of a smartphone, a radio beacon, a wireless speaker, an LED flashlight and a stylus are connected together.
The case of the device is protected from water according to the IP67 standard and is not at all afraid of external influences. If the emergency button is pressed, the device starts sending out text messages with the coordinates of the victim. The mailing is carried out on the contacts entered in advance.
The brightness of the flashlight is 150 lumens, the battery lasts about a day for such a flashlight. Well, the built-in stylus for displays will help you use your phone or tablet if your hands are frozen.
External battery Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 2 20,000 mAh
Even if there is a suitcase with which you can charge your devices, the external battery will still not interfere. Xiaomi recently released a second version of its capacious battery for 20,000 mAh. With its help, the battery of the iPhone 7, for example, can be charged more than 7 times.
This battery is approved by regulators, so that it can safely be carried aboard the aircraft. Actually, it's just an external battery, so there's really nothing to paint here. The only thing is, the battery is equipped with two USB ports, which allows charging several devices at the same time. The maximum output voltage and amperage are 5.1V / 3.6A. The battery is protected from short circuit, so you can easily charge your devices with it.
Cori Traveler Pillow
Cori Traveler is a comfortable cushion with a bunch of functions, the money for the production of which is collected on Kickstarter (only a few days left until the end of the campaign). Developers from Singapore have achieved that in the folded state, this pillow reaches only 12 cm in diameter. It fits in the palm of your hand. There is no electronics, but it is not needed here.
The Cori Traveler cushion consists of a long pillow, a belt and a short cushion. Thanks to all these elements, you can fix it as you like. It is useful in a bus, train and in the car will not be superfluous.
This is an inflatable sofa with which you can relax anywhere and everywhere. Beach, apartment, meadow in the woods or even an airport – the rest became public. The second version of Bivan is flatter, which means it is more stable. Since Biwan is our own development, we should not have taken it and changed its design, making it as convenient as possible (all around 20 models of Bivans were created and tested during the production period).
In the second version we added a pillow and Membrane, which makes it possible to sleep face down. The fabric is impregnated with water-repellent impregnation. It even has pegs and lights.
The pump, by the way, is also not needed, so one problem is less. To inflate this sofa, you need only a few strokes, the whole process will take no more than 30 seconds (we marked). When folded, the Beavan 2.0 is very small and light (1.5 kg), it can be transported without any problems, for this purpose, a comfortable shoulder bag is included. The air keeps the inflatable sofa for about 12 hours.
This device looks like a regular flash drive. In fact, it's a walkie-talkie, allowing to communicate to travelers who have wandered through the forest or other locations. To work just need to connect the radio wirelessly to the smartphones of all participants in the trip.
And then even without communication you can communicate in the messenger, exchange information, however, the range of the device is not very large – only 5 kilometers.
