  • New gadgets could help travelers eat and bike all day and night

    2010-03-17

    When visiting another country, one of the best ways to catch an up close and personal view of one's new surroundings is by taking a bicycle trek through the region. Thanks to some new travel gadgets, biking through a foreign place may soon become even easier.

    The one piece of equipment essential to a biking trip is a bicycle, and while it may be fun to rent a bike from a local business, familiarity with one's ride can make the adventure much smoother. Fortunately for the avid traveler there is the Brompton M67 foldable bike, a British-made cycle that can adjust to the narrowest dimensions (10 x 24 x 32) and weighs only 25 pounds. The highly portable bike can travel on trains, planes, or stow comfortably in a car's trunk.

    Desiring a snack while in the wilderness? Professionals at the Taiwan Textile Institute have developed the world's first foldable cloth oven - a lunchbox sized contraption capable of holding temperatures of up to 300 degrees, hot enough to roast a chicken or bake cookies.

    For travelers who may be forced to bike at night, there are the UV LED Goggles. This item presents a combination of night vision, infra-red and what travelgadgets.org refers to as "x-ray" vision goggles that illuminate even the darkest paths.
