Brookstone Pocket Projector

This nifty gizmo transforms any iPhone 4 or 4S into a portable, big-screen theater and slideshow maker, perfect for impromptu movies, in-flight presentations or photo sharing — not to mention keeping kids entertained with their favorite videos during long road trips. The first projector of its kind, the accessory acts as a thin sleeve that lets you project video content from your phone or any app that allows for video output, such as Netflix or YouTube, onto any surface, at a display of up to 50 inches (diagonally). The projector features super-bright, 15-lumen LED illumination, has a built-in speaker and can charge your phone when not projecting. $229.99.

PocketFinder Personal GPS Locator

If you are separated from your bag, you can easily show the agent where it landed. Or preempt the recovery process entirely by making sure your bag is on the plane before take-off. Use PocketFinder to keep track of even more valuable possessions — your children! $149.95 (device plus two months of service; $12.95 per month thereafter).

Philadelphia’s Fairmount Boasts Impressive Collections and a Friendly Vibe

As a native of the Philadelphia region, I’m quite familiar with the drive in and out of the City of Brotherly Love. Even as the city’s skyline continually transforms, my favorite views of Philadelphia have always been along Boathouse Row, with the Philadelphia Museum of Art rising in the background, before looping around the museum to the flag-lined Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Home to many of Philadelphia’s incredible and world-renowned museums, the Fairmount neighborhood is fittingly aesthetically pleasing and practically synonymous with fine art.

Slow Down and Unwind in Easy-Going Phuket

It’s not even 9a.m. in the sleepy fishing village of Rawai on Thailand’s famous Phuket Island, but already the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea swarm with local fishermen casting their lines and releasing their nets from the bows of rustic long-tail boats. The scents of lemongrass, incense and sweet pandan leaves season the air as the villagers slowly rise from their beachside bungalows to start their day. In just a few more hours, the fishermen will return with their catches, filling the stalls of the iconic Rawai Seafood Market with buckets of shellfish and displays of fresh filets. Visitors line up each afternoon for the catch of the day, selecting their fish with care before hauling their purchases across the well-worn road to the restaurants opposite the market to have the fish cooked for 100 Thai baht per kilo.
