Panono Ball Camera
A true — and dazzling — innovation: One quick toss of this camera captures everything in every direction into a high-resolution, 360-degree by 360-degree full-spherical panoramic image. Toss it high in the air and the camera’s accelerometer calculates when it’s at its highest point and barely moving, then triggers 36 cameras to capture the moment. View images in the free Panono app by moving your phone up, down and all around as if you were inside the image. The 108-megapixel images provide incredible detail, even things you didn’t see when you snapped the shot. It also works as a handheld camera, or you can mount it on a pole. Available for preorder. $549.
The world’s smallest Bluetooth location sticker keeps track of valuables like your keys, wallet and luggage, tracking them within 150 feet via a free smartphone app. Also create a virtual leash that notifies you if your sticker goes out of a set range — for example, if a fellow traveler accidentally grabs your luggage at baggage claim. If you lose a tagged item, activate the “lost sticker” feature; any user running the SticknFind application will automatically begin looking for your lost sticker; once it’s detected, you will receive email notification with “last place seen” and timestamp information. $49.99 for two stickers.
Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III Camera
Here’s the first Cyber-shot model to offer high-resolution HD video recording at a data rate of 50MB per second with lower compression for improved video quality. The brighter, wider aperture lens gathers twice as much light as previous models, ensuring portrait subjects are captured against beautiful background defocus and allowing the lens to capture moving subjects clearly without blur. The liquid crystal display tilts upward by 180 degrees for selfportraits and down to about 45 degrees for high-angle shots. Connect via built-in WiFi with Xperia or NFC-compatible Android smartphones or tablets for instant image transfer. Smart Remote Control links the camera with your device to preview a live image, fire the shutter from a distance or review shots instantly. Devices without NFC one-touch capabilities can wirelessly transfer images and activate remote control through Sony’s free PlayMemories Mobile app for iOS and Android. $800 (exact price not yet available).

I was part of a group of travelers attending the Hamad International Airport Expansion presentation in Doha. Most arrived the day before, but due to a family commitment, I arrived the following day. A driver picked me up at the airport and drove me to the sleek and modern Mondrian Doha, designed by Marcel Wanders of the Netherlands. The 270-room property was the first sbe hotel in the Middle East. My luggage was scanned and put aside for a hand check and the guard removed the little sleep sound device I use to cover city noise when I sleep and travel. “No speakers allowed,” the guard said, but once I explained what the item was he allowed me to take it. From there, check-in was swift, and I received a packet of information about dinner and the week’s agenda.
