Travel Product of the Week: TravelCard

TravelCard

Pretty much every traveler I know (especially iPhone users) finds keeping their phone charged a real and constant challenge on the road. The TravelCard is a portable smartphone charger that fits in your wallet and gives you an additional five hours of talk time—so while it may not solve the problem entirely, it could be a […]

Travel Product of the Week: Sleeper Scarf

Sleeper Scarf

Last week we featured a scarf that comes with a surgical mask in it to protect you from germs. This week’s product—the Sleeper Scarf—is designed with a built-in neck pillow to help you sleep better. What’s really clever about entrepreneur Tiffany Paul’s patented design is that it contains a hidden, built-in “U” shaped pocket to securely hold the pillow in place—and which […]

Travel Product of the Week: Scough

Scough

Here’s a brilliant idea that’s just in time for the Ebola panic. Most travelers don’t want to wear a silly-looking surgeon’s mask to keep healthy or keep their germs in. But thanks to a new scarf that has built-in protection (carbon filter), they don’t have to. With the Scough, you can travel at ease while still looking stylish. Prices […]

Travel Product of the Week: Airport Throw Pillows

Pillow

Are you an aviation lover like me? If so, I bet you’ll love these Airportag airport throw pillows (and tote bags and mugs) that use IATA codes—the three-letter codes that designate many airports around the world as defined by the International Air Transport Association—as the main design element. Their bestseller is LHR (London Heathrow), and I’m not surprised […]

It can be used in a number of ways and positions, including one that offers lower back support. It’s highly compact, portable and washable and it folds up flat for […]

Travel Product of the Week: T-Mobile Personal CellSpot + More

T-Mobile

The big travel news this past week was yet another example of T-Mobile shaking things up in the cellular industry. The latest is their introduction of the T-Mobile Personal CellSpot, which is like having a T-Mobile tower in your house (or wherever you choose to put it). My biggest (and really only) beef with T-Mobile is that […]

Travel Product of the Week: Panono Ball Camera

Panono

I want this camera! The only problem, besides it being expensive ($549), is that it’s not available for purchase yet. What makes the Panono so special? It’s a ball with 36 little cameras, so one quick toss will capture everything in every direction in one high-resolution “360° x 360° full-spherical” panoramic image. Check out the video […]

Travel Product of the Week: Autographer

Autographer

I can’t count the number of times I wish I’d had a wearable camera to capture the images I was seeing instead of either missing them or putting myself and others in danger. Like the time I tripped down a United Airlines plane stairs on the island of Kona because I was so excited to […]
