Google Station aims to bring Wi-Fi to public spaces across the globe
thenextweb.com/google-wants-to-bring-wi-fi-to-public-spaces-across-the-world-with-its-new-initiative
Access for everyone. That is the goal for these tech hubs providing free Wi-Fi in places that did not have it before. This also means more users and more visitors to the online sites then ever before. However, this also opens up more opportunity for unscrupulous folks to road the public access for devices with weaker protection and try to steal data. To avoid getting hacked or scammed, just make sure to have your Wi-Fi and devices protected with private VPN that will make public wi-fi more secure.

New Cool Up-and-Coming Travel Gadgets - February

Soon your new gadgets will come with a new type of Wi-Fi. This new version will be made for not just gadgets, but for the network of connected devices in your home that would be part of Internet of Things. Wi-Fi HaLow (pronounced halo) doubles the distance and cuts the power consumption of traditional Wi-Fi. While most modern routers operate in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz spectrum, HaLow transmits in the 900MHz band. This band transmits twice as far as the 2.4GHz standard and offers better wall penetration. It is mostly useful and the hope if for it to become the standard for wearable devices where Bluetooth radios are used now.

Future iPhones Could Come With Li-Fi For Superfast Internet

How are you supposed to know when a car is getting uncomfortably close?
That's where Garmin thinks it can help. As part of a larger CES launch, it's unveiling a Varia Vision headset that not only gives you vital cycling data (directions, notifications and performance), but teams up with the Varia rearview radar to warn about traffic behind you. You'll know about trouble right away without losing focus. Read more here http://www.engadget.com/2015/07/01/garmin-varia-range-rear-view-radar/

http://www.ohgizmo.com/2016/01/04/google-glass-2-0-will-not-be-cheap

Lenovo Yoga Mouse and Remote Control
This slim mouse/remote hybrid will make a great travel companion — just like Lenovo’s Yoga laptops. The Yoga starts out completely flat, where you can use it as a remote to control presentations, movies, or music playing on your laptop. But give it a twist and it shifts into a downward dog shape, with the perfect ergonomic angle to rest your hand on for use as a mouse. A rechargeable battery gives it about a month of battery life, which makes it easy to toss into your laptop bag without having to worry about whether you’ve plugged it in (or whether you’re carrying spare batteries). Available: April 2016

Ili Wearable Translator
it automatically translates your message aloud in the language of your choice. (Currently, it works in English, Japanese and Chinese, with plans to expand to French, Thai, Korean, Spanish, Italian and Arabic.) Ili is rather unique in that it doesn’t require an Internet connection, instead having a built-in dictionary of 50,000 words. tech that could make international travel a lot easier.

New Airplane Design with Detachable Cabin
A concept for redesign of an airplane would have an entire passenger cabin detach in mid-flight from a troubled aircraft. The detached passenger compartment would then float harmlessly to the ground under a couple of huge parachutes. Its landing would be cushioned by massive inflatable rubber bumpers.

11 Ways OLED Technology Is Amazing
OLED screens are flexible and require a lot less electrical power than current screens to work. These characteristics would be great for travel gadgets that can go anywhere without cracking and take up less space and also need less time and frequency of charging them.
https://www.thrillist.com/entertainment/nation/why-oled-technology-is-amazing

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
