ZOMM Wireless Leash
Here’s a nifty product whose time is long overdue, especially for those who have endured the hassle of losing a phone. Using Bluetooth technology, the keychain-sized ZOMM prevents you from losing or misplacing your mobile phone by vibrating, flashing lights and sounding an alarm when you stray too far from your device (better yet, you can select the appropriate distance). Features include the ability to mute the ringer and other sounds, adjust the ZOMM volume from your phone, customize the number ZOMM dials in case of emergency and even name your ZOMM. It also boasts call notification and a fully functional speakerphone with a noise-canceling microphone for safe hands-free communication — all for less than $100, with no monthly fees. Available in black or white. $99.99.
PeeWee PC Power 2.0 Laptop
Here’s the ideal entry-level computer for your pint-sized, aspiring global traveler. Designed for children 3–12, its ultra-compact design and sturdy, drop-resistant exterior are able to withstand demanding everyday use. Weighing in at less than three pounds, it comes fully loaded with a water-resistant keyboard, a built-in camera, Windows 7, Microsoft Works 9.0 and 15 educational games. Most important, two security software suites — PeeWee Patrol and Privacy — ensure maximum security and protection for children by allowing you to limit how much time they spend browsing and gaming, block inappropriate sites and prevent them from changing system settings. Additionally, the proprietary software lets you take screen shots, view browsing history and control the laptop remotely. $449.99.
MicroVision SHOWWX+ Laser Pico Projector
The SHOWWX+ is the first laser pico projector to offer a big-screen, movie-length experience in an ultra-portable package. Boasting a super-short “throw” ratio, the SHOWWX+ displays large, bright images even in close or cramped environments, such as the back of an airplane seat or in an elevator. The shorter “throw” of SHOWWX+ allows users to project images that are twice as big as those from competing products from the same projection distance. Boasting two hours of battery life and a contrast ratio up to five times higher than competing products, the SHOWWX+ deftly expands viewing experiences beyond a palm- or pad-sized screen. It works with iPod, iPhone and iPad as well as a range of mobile phones, notebooks, cameras and camcorders — anything with video-out or VGA functionality — and casts a 12-inch to 100-inch diagonal image, depending on lighting conditions. $449.
dB Logic SPL2 Earphones
CES 2011 marked the premiere of these no-battery-required, ultra-low-distortion headphones and earphones. dB Logic’s proprietary sound-pressure-level-limiting technology, SPL2, controls volume levels using advanced circuitry, eliminating the need for bulky battery-powered processors required by competitive products. The circuitry regulates the volume when needed while still keeping the musical content largely unchanged. By maintaining the integrity of the sound, this safeguard is virtually imperceptible to the listener, and the audio content does not sound clipped or distorted. Plus, at this cost, you can buy a pair for a tech-savvy friend. $29.99–$39.99.
Navigli is Milan’s current “it” neighborhood, a quick tram or train ride from the Duomo, the oft-photographed Quadrilatero della Moda shopping, museums, chain stores and throngs of tourists. While it has the youthful vibe and artist-chic found in formerly industrial neighborhoods in major cities around the globe, it’s not every day you’ll find such a district that has reinvented itself as a Venice that’s wholly defined by the stylish and tech-savvy locals who live, work and play there. It is both photogenic and approachable, while also tapping into the current sustainability zeitgeist.
