droplet_v2_beach_square_002With careful planning and expert folding one can cram everything one needs needed including toiletries and necessary gadgets into a small carry case in a backpack for a two-day trip and a short flight. But returning with sweaty clothes or damp swim shorts can put a damper on the return trip.

And something I wish I had on my last adventure is the Matador Droplet Wet Bag. It’s a 100% polyester waterproof ultra compact wet bag that measures 27 cm x 23 cm and has a 3 L capacity. It’s not designed to be submersible, but it is ideal for keeping things like damp swimsuits separated from your precious computer gear.   It can also be used the other way around as a place to store some of your gadgets and things that you don’t want getting wet when it’s raining or water nearby. Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.

Review: iRig BlueTurn wirelessly turns your page

iRigBlueTurn_top_feet

Accessing your computer or mobile device while on stage for artists or presenters can often be a pain. This is especially true if your hands are full and all you want to do is turn a page on your sheet music, change a setlist or move through a presentation. This is where the new iRig BlueTurn comes in. It’s a compact wireless page turning gadget that utilizes your foot rather than your hand.

Created by IK Multimedia and made in Italy, iRig BlueTurn is a simple yet clever little BlueTooth enabled box. It’s designed to sit on the floor with two soft touch illuminated buttons positioned side-by-side to execute commands from one of three preset modes: Arrow up/down, Page up/down or Arrow left/right that you can configure upon power-up. In some apps, receiving these commands may allow control of other functions such as scrolling and start/stop functionality in certain modes depending on how the app interprets the standardized commands.

The Storm Electric Skateboard is like a regular skateboard, plus an on-board motor and simple Bluetooth LE, which allows riders to control the direction and pace of the board.

“It’s a board that allows riders an incredible amount of freedom without compromising the ability to ride in the traditional way,” said Storm founder and CEO John Madden. “It’s stylish, functional and lightweight. Our board is really going to change the game while offering an incredibly low price that other electronic skateboard makers simply can’t match.” Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.
