• Stress-relieving travel gadgets

    2010-10-14

    One of the main reasons people take vacations is to relax and get away from the stress of daily life, yet traveling can create its own worries.

    Between concentrating on not forgetting anything in the hotel room to worrying about whether the water is drinkable, it may be difficult for travelers to get the most out of their vacations. The good news is that there is a growing industry of gadgets designed for travelers' comfort.

    The manufacturers of SteriPEN, for instance, claim that the small device uses ultraviolet light to kill over 99.9 percent of bacteria in a glass of water, meaning that travelers no longer have to search a foreign destination for a place to buy unwieldy packs of bottled water.

    Reef manufactures beach sandals that have a hidden storage tray inside the sole, relieving beachgoers of the uncomfortable duty of glancing back at their beach bag to make sure their valuables aren't being stolen.

    For business travelers, Kensington manufactures a notebook computer lock that may prevent theft if a traveler leaves his computer unattended at a coffee shop for a short time.
