Essential travel items updated – they should make your next adventure a breeze
NEW LOCKABLE LUGGAGE
From R1 999, capeunionmart.co.za The new American Tourister Lightrax Spinner is a collection of lightweight suitcases (from a 2,6kg 55cm case) that incorporates a new type of lock to deter thieves. It prevents any movement of the zippers by securing the grips into the body of the bag with a combination code lock. The hard-shell case features an interior hanging pocket and the double-wheel trolley makes it easier and more comfortable to pull.
R9 400, nikon.co.za Nikon has entered the actioncamera market with an exciting debut – the KeyMission 360, a dual-lens, twin-sensor camera that captures its surroundings in a 360-degree high-quality 4K video or stitched into a highresolution 23,9-megapixel image. This is truly immersive travel cinema, and like most action cameras it’s waterproof (30 metres), shockproof (two metres) and has sharing abilities so you can upload as you go.
I’VE GOT THE SUN IN MY POCKET
From R66 for 10, dischem.co.za OK, this isn’t technology in the conventional sense, but sunscreen is still the smartest wearable ‘tech’ out there, right? And these credit cardsized sachets of EezySun are simple to pop in your pocket when you’re on the go. The sachet snaps open easily for a good serving of sunscreen, either SPF30 or SPF50, that generously covers your face and arms. The sachets are plastic, so remember to recycle them.
A BIRD OR A PLANE?
R12 995, outdoorwarehouse.co.za The new Parrot Bebop 2 bundle pack is the affordable superman of flying tech, consisting of a compact and lightweight 500g full-HD video drone (it also snaps stills) that has a range of two kilometres and 25 minutes flying time on a full battery. It’s also got a pair of immersive flight goggles called Cockpit Glasses that link up to your smart phone to create an amazing virtual experience so you can play pilot from the ground.
PUMP IT UP
R2 999, makro.co.za Camping has finally joined the 21st century with the new fivesleeper Air Tech Safari Dome from Camp Master – a canvas tent that doesn’t need any tent poles. Instead, the frame is pumped up to inflate the structure (like you would for an air mattress). It also includes another clever update – built-in LED lights with a dimmer function are fitted inside the tent.
