  • New gadgets help keep travelers safe and connected

    2010-03-10

    Traveling abroad can be one of the most fun and liberating experiences of a person's life, yet with the potential language barrier, unfamiliar laws and customs, or tourist-targeting street crime, it can also be quite harrowing. Fortunately for modern adventurers, a new wave of travel tech gadgets can help keep a person safe, in touch and enjoying their trip.

    When heading to the beach, many travelers worry about the fate of items in their pockets like credit cards, hotel keys or loose cash. Leaving them out in the open while one goes for a swim is ill advised even in the safest places. Fortunately, surfwear company Reef has introduced the Stash Sandals, a hollow yet structurally sound flip flop with a secret storage compartment hidden in the heel.

    For business travelers who don't want to break out their global cell phones every few minutes there is the ultra-sleek O.R.B. Bluetooth by Hybra Advance Technology. This tiny gadget appears as a stainless steel ring that can produce caller IDs, text messages and appointment info, and turns into a fully functional earpiece with a twist.

    Once one feels safe and connected, they'll probably want to start snapping photos, and thanks to the multi-functional Gorillapod positioning system, tourists will never have to ask a stranger to take a picture again.
