Ultra-Efficient Folding Wings on Boeing 777X
Wing size matters—bigger wings generate greater lift, which can improve an airplane’s fuel efficiency. Boeing’s new 777X twin-engine airliner will have lower fuel consumption and operating costs per seat. Its wings, while larger than most, are strong and flexible with tips that fold up so it can fit fine within today’s airports.


New Patent Allows Passengers to Fly on Top of the Plane
The latest seat technology isn’t jamming more passengers onto a plane or adding new gadgets to your seat back. Instead, you may soon be flying on top of the plane—that’s right, on top. The SkyDeck, a 360-degree, teardrop-shaped bubble, is ready to radically redefine the term "window seat." For even more luxury and Jetson-level technology, passengers will access the two seats through an elevator and, once inside, will be able to rotate their seats to see what it’s really like to fly at 300,000 feet. ...More

Screen As Solar Charger
A new type of battery is in the works that will let phone, for the first time, utilize solar power. Sunpartner Technologies' Wysips, turns a phone's screen into a solar collector. It's similar to the way Casio solar watches and calculators used to be powered. Though now this is being tested for phones, tablets, and notebooks.
At the moment, the solar cells can generate roughly 2.5 milliwatts per square centimeter in typical sunlight conditions. After 10 minutes in the sun, the screen could generate enough electricity to power a phone for an extra couple minutes of talk time. Currently, the technology of the solar screen to meant augment gadget's battery rather than fully power it. Though more development is on the way to increase the power output. This would be great for travel, since sun energy is a lot more abundant then electric plugs

What Are These Travel Gadgets Posts?

What Are These Travel Gadgets Posts?


Happy New Year. If you are new to this site or have visited in the past, with the new year new opportunities rolling out I would like to provide some background for the content and development behind Travel Tech Gadgets.
If I put something on my blog that I say I have used that means I spent a lot of time agonizing again and again over validity of the purchase. And have looked over many reviews from various sites and finally decided to get it.

Case in point, our new home internet router. We have been unhappy with the performance of the current router for months. It is the one that is provided by our internet company and is also 4+ years old. It does not meet the needs that we currently have for multiple laptops, phones, cameras, and streaming gadgets that are in our home. So I have been going back and forth deciding if we should ask the cable company for an updated router or buy a better version ourselves. It is either we get it 'free' or put up money at the front and hopefully enjoy a better performance. After contacting customer service and confirming that their new router is not much better than the current, I made the final decision to get the router that is highest rated on a couple of the top consumer gadget review sites. And can report that I am very glad I did. The speed and reach of wireless connection has increased significantly.

This works most of the time as the gadgets I finally get perform well. Hence this site.
I love travel and gadgets. And realized there are lot of useful gadgets that can make your travel better. Though most of the time the information is segmented and a lot of it comes out around holidays only. The rest of the year, it is tucked away in lower sections of sites.
Looking through many different gadgets on daily basis and reading through their reviews, I am hoping to provide a spot to get some insight on what is available, great to use, and coming up in travel and gadgets.

Best!

and Bonvoyage!

Travel Video of the Week - Things You No Longer Need Because of Smartphones


30 Things You No Longer Need Because of Smartphones

Our smartphones have replaced a lot of the travel gadgets and accessories we used to pack for a trip. These new devices have also enhanced some of the parts of travel beyond what was previously possible. I have mentioned the usefullness of smartphone while en route in a few previous posts: Smartwatches: A Revolution on Your Wrist?, Business Traveler Must-Have Travel Gadgets, and Best Gadgets for Watching Movies While Traveling. There is a lot you can do just with this small gadget in your pocket or bag. Video below shows 30 such items that we no longer need to take with us which means packing a lot less of the travel assist gear and more of the necessities. Which is so much better considering all of the luggage fees and transportation costs that exist now.
