    One of the benefits of technology is that it makes our lives easier. So when booking your next trip, make sure to check out the wide variety of gadgets that exist to make your travels less stressful.

    For the traveler who likes to pack light and keep things compact, check out the Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse. It lies flat when not in use, which is perfect for simple storage. Click once and it becomes arched like a regular mouse, ready to use on any surface without needing a mouse pad. The company also claims that its battery can hold a charge for up to six months.

    Another compact gadget is the Apple iPad, which is a tablet computer that has all the necessary workings of a laptop, but without all the bulk. It can last up to 10 hours, allowing travelers to watch television shows or movies on long flights, and also stores mobile applications to provide endless amount of entertainment.

    Student travelers may want to look into buying the Livescribe Echo Smartpen. This small device can record audio while students write, which helps with taking notes quickly because the keywords are synced to the audio. The recording can be downloaded onto a PC or Mac via a USB port so students can review a lecture when studying.
