Still ahead: go to rest in the velvet season with comfortable gadgets

Vacation is not always the sea and sand, but many imagine it when they think about the rest. Or not?

The vacation period is not over yet - there is still enough time to rest and get new impressions. Half August, September, October are ideal for holidays. Someone prefers to go to the sea in the midst of summer, while others prefer a calmer time, when it's not so hot, and there are fewer people around.

In addition, not everyone is going to the sea. Someone closer to the north, someone in a hurry to the mountains, and someone likes to spend their holidays in the country. Anyway, new technologies allow to make a vacation memorable and as comfortable as possible. The Madrobots team decided to share useful things that are useful to every vacationer.

Let's start with the fees. When you go for a long time (in any case, more than a couple of days), you want to take with you the most necessary things. But often it turns out that this necessary recruited a lot.

Everything that should always be at hand should be placed in a backpack. You can test the strength of the Thule Crossover TCBP-317 with a volume of 25 liters. Thule is known to many, so it doesn’t need any extra advertising. And the model of the backpack in question differs from other ergonomic design and high-quality materials. It is ideal for geeks, since the design of the backpack provides for a pocket for laptop, and pockets and compartments for other gadgets, including a shockproof compartment for fragile things. The materials here are water resistant and durable. There are handles for carrying, shoulder belts are perforated. In general, everything is perfect for a small trip, and for a relatively long hiking trip.

Well, in order not to depend on electrical networks, you can use the Goal Zero Nomad 7 portable solar battery. Its size in the unfolded state is 22.9 × 3.8 × 43.2 cm. You can fasten the panel directly on the backpack - then there will always be a supply of electricity for gadgets. The panel is equipped with an inverter with three ports - standard USB, 12 V and 6-6.5 V for the branded charger Guide 10. There is also a pocket where it is convenient to place a charging device.

But back to the suitcases. They, of course, are different. For example, Bluesmart One allows you to charge your gadgets on the road from two USB ports, plus determine the weight of things - the sensor is built right into the pen.

The ergonomics of the briefcase is also great. There are two internal departments, plus one external with a lock. The lock is locked using a smartphone, including automatic mode. If the owner has moved a certain distance, the lock locks the contents. Plus, all external materials are waterproof, and inside the device there is a 3G / GPS navigator, which allows you to always be aware of where the load is now. With a phone suitcase is connected via Bluetooth.

This model has a “big brother”, Bluesmart Black Edition , which is equipped with a 10400 mAh battery. The suitcase has a siren that helps scare off thieves, plus a flashlight (everything gets better with a flashlight). Both suitcases are subject to a 10% discount for Geektimes readers (promotional code - MOORE).


Sometimes you want to do anything on the road - just sit, look out the window and listen to your favorite music. In this case, headphones with noise reduction will be useful. Not everyone will be interested in what they say neighbors coupe or aisle in the plane. Headphones cut off the extra noise and make you feel comfortable anywhere. There are a lot of noise suppression models. These are Bragi Dash, SONY MDR-1000X, Bose QuietComfort 20 and many others . Every year all new models come out, headphones are getting better. Of the relatively low cost options, consider Plantronics BackBeat Pro . They have excellent noise reduction, the sound quality is the same, plus they cost 2-3 times less than typical audiophile headphones.

Even on the road, you can capture the long-awaited novelty - a quadrocopter DJI Spark . At once, we say that it is quite expensive, but the functions with which it is equipped allow us to remember the rest for a long time. First of all, it is 12 MP camera.

The drone case has dimensions of 14 * 14 * 5 cm when folded, so that it fits in any bag, backpack, suitcase or even in a rather capacious pocket.

You can control the drone using a smartphone with a pre-installed application. The camera takes high-quality and realistic images, there is also a video recording in HD mode, and the video is transmitted in real time via WiFi.

A kopter can simply shoot everything that is under it, it can focus on the owner, and for this there are as many as three modes - from flying from the bottom up to flying in a spiral. In general, this little drone can do a lot, its detailed review and comparison with the DJI Mavic Pro is here . Yes, for GT readers there is a 10% discount, promotional code - MOORE.

Another of the drones can be mentioned a safe copter for self Zero Zero Robotics Camera Hover Camera Passport. It is called that, because it is a booklet, almost like a passport, yes. He hasn't come to us yet, but you can read the review here .

E-book - do not forget it, if you have one. Especially if the flight or the train journey takes more than a few hours, then reading is ideal. You will not be talking to fellow travelers for 14 hours in a row (although it is not enough), but you can read for an unlimited time. Not everyone likes to read from the screens of smartphones, especially if you use e-Paper, your eyes get less tired. There are a lot of models, and these are Kindle , and Pocketbook, and options from Sony. Yes, and Chinese manufacturers produce excellent models now, so the choice is great.

Yes, by the way, an external battery is also worth taking. Thousands of models, but those that really deserve attention, yet not so much. There are batteries at one time, and there are universal stations that can charge a laptop, tablet, and much more. An example is Rombica batteries . Xiaomi also makes good and inexpensive batteries - there are 5,000 mAh small batteries, and there are more serious and heavier ones at 20,000 mAh.

By the way, what about holidays (besides ordinary things, of course) do you take with you? GPS tags? Smart shoes? Or just a towel and a good mood? Tell us in the comments, we will be interested.
