Just because the space shuttle Atlantis is on its final mission, that doesn’t mean NASA’s run out of cool experiments. Its latest example? A shiny silver bag — consciously inspired by the “stillsuits” from Frank Herbert’s sci-fi classic, Dune — that turns astronaut urine into potable drinking water. It’s been done, you say? Sure, but the earlier tech relied on electricity: a precious commodity aboard the International Space Station. The Forward Osmosis Bag requires no outside power source, relying on, you guessed it, forward osmosis to produce clean, [...]
Toshiba’s 3D monocle may have been a joke, but what you’re looking at above is not. It’s one of the latest additions to its 3D Satellite lineup, now growing to include the P770 and P775 3D. Both include massive 18.4-inch displays that clock in at 120Hz, enabling use of NVIDIA active-shutter glasses — which you’ll have to find a spot for in your laptop bag. Dual webcams in the bezel let you add a little depth to your video calls, while the HDMI output can manage depth-enabled content too. There’s a re-writeable Blu-ray drive and what’s sure to be a [...]
The ‘Before’ Shot
Inside Style by Annmarie O’Connor – as featured in The Dubliner magazine – November 18th
Wardrobe malfunctions; why do they always seem to happen at the most inopportune moment? It’s as if cosmic spite and shoddy tailoring have aligned to create instances of gross mortification almost exclusively at public outings. Let me explain.
Last weekend I attended the wedding of one of my close friends. The Galway nuptials involved a prolific congregation and an ill-fated sense of preparation on my part. I was keen to perfect the art of capsule [...]
It won’t be long before airlines start charging by the pound. Heck, you’re already docked a $90 fee if your bag’s weight exceeds 50 pounds. That’s why you might benefit greatly from this self-weighing luggage, displaying its weight in an easy-to-read LCD.
Simply pick up your bag, and its LCD screen tips you off if you’ve picked up one too many souvenirs on that shopping vacation. Nice idea — if it could prevent you from going over 50 pounds just once, it’ll almost pay for its $100 price. Now if they could just make it self-propelled, it would be ideal luggage
At first glance, I thought the main benefit of the Cloak Bag would be protection or ease-of-use. While it promotes both, it was developed for a different reason: concealment.
The Cloak Bag is after what sounds like a niche market, making it so that photographers can shoot without exposing their camera. “Almost every time I pulled out my new SLR in public, my Argentine friends would quickly advise me to put it back in its bag to avoid my being robbed,” the story on the Cloak Bag website reads. With the Cloak, you don’t let on that you’re wielding a super fancy camera, though [...]

There you are, racing from Terminal A to Terminal Z so you can catch that flight home, which departs in exactly three minutes. You’ve got your carry-on bag trundling along beside you, and your trusty laptop bag thrown over one shoulder. Every step causes that thin pleather strap to slide a little farther down your shoulder, until *blam* your laptop bag drops to the floor, tripping you in a pile of shame and misery. You need the booq Tapian shadow.
As you can see from the photo above, the Taipan shadow “features an innovative luggage trolley pass-through. This unique feature unzips across [...]
My general opinion is that laptops were made for laps. But sometimes your lap just isn’t convenient or comfortable for a laptop. There is no shortage of laptop stands, shelves, and supports available for purchase, but few strike the sweet spot that the AViiQ portable laptop stand does. It’s super thin, super light, and folds up to consume a negligible amount of space, making it a no-brainer to include in your already-full laptop bag.
Accommodating all laptops—including the 17-inch-wide models
effortlessly folds down to 1/4-inch for exceptional storage and portability
crafted from [...]
The V7 Metro Messenger Carrying Case and Smart Slip Case by Targus aren’t flashy. They aren’t fancy. They’re a couple of back-to-basics, black laptop bags. In our doubleheader review we take a look at both the messenger bag and the slip case and see how they perform in the real world. You can’t judge a bag by its cover, after all.
V7 is the in-house brand of Ingram Micro, a worldwide distributor of all things IT. As evidenced by the title at the top of this review, these V7 bags have been manufactured by a more familiar laptop accessories manufacturer – Targus.
Our last Targus bag review [...]
