让旅行更轻松的四件神器

Colleen Kane 2016年09月05日

想让旅行充满智能,不妨试试这些新装备。

如今全世界的旅行者踏上征途时,可以选择各种各样的装备。但琳琅满目的产品里到底有多少能真正提升旅行体验呢?不管是休闲游还是商务出行,哪件装备用起来最顺手?《财富》杂志近日精选了一些旅行中使用的物件,用上后能让旅途大为改观,从今往后穿梭各地,享受自在体验。

1.带上随身Wi-Fi

The world traveler has no shortage of gadgets to choose from when hitting the road. But how many of these products would improve your trip? Whether you’re touring or on a business trip, which gear would prove most handy? Fortune looks a new crop of travel items—ones that are changing and easing how we navigate and experience the world.

1.Bring Your Own Wi-Fi

 
Venture Backpack皮包
 

无线网络对旅行者来说十分重要:Venture Backpack(thisisground.com, 925美元)就提供便携 Wi-Fi。该公司提供两种尺寸的定制皮包,已获美国运输安全局特许,过安检时可将笔记本电脑留在包里。无线网络由手掌大小的Karma Go公司产品发射,有多种方案可选:无需合约自动续订(每月40美元至150美元),以及按流量付费(15美元/G)。

说明:该款包外表为植物鞣意大利皮革,并非任何天气都适用,不过造型亮眼,当商务皮包也没问题。

2.机器人行李箱

For travelers, this is kind of a big deal: The Venture Backpack(thisisground.com, $925) comes with its own Wi-Fi. The made-to-order leather bag is available in two sizes that are TSA-approved for leaving a laptop inside when going through security. The wireless Internet is supplied via a palm-size device by Karma Go (yourkarma.com), which has several plans: a contract-free auto-refreshing plan ($40 to $150 a month) and a pay-as-you-go option ($15 per gigabyte).

Caveat: Constructed of vegetable-tanned Italian leather, the bag isn’t ideal for all weather, but it’s sleek and attractive as a business tote.

2. The Robot Suitcase

Cowarobot行李箱

幻想中的未来已经实现,确切地说是11月就会实现,一款可以自动跟随主人的机器人行李箱Cowarobot(cowarobot.com, 699美元)即将发售。这款产品最早在众筹网站Indiegogo上发起,特点是能自动避开障碍物,以4.5英里/小时的速度跟随主人,保持约一个手臂的距离。此外,行李箱内嵌GPS芯片,配备用app才能开启的电子锁,还有“找寻”功能,所以永远不会弄丢。更妙的是,行李箱的续航能力达96.5瓦特小时,可以持续前进12.5英里。

说明:碰到“中古”世界的鹅卵石路,机器人行李箱可能会有麻烦。不过好在关键时刻还能采用传统模式——用手拉。

3.线材整理

The future is now—or rather, in November, with the debut of the Cowarobot (cowarobot.com, $699), a robotic suitcase that follows its owner. Launched on Indiegogo, the Cowarobot avoids obstacles while following at arm’s length at up to 4½ miles per hour. It has other smart features like embedded GPS, an electronic lock that opens via app, and a “find me” option so the suit- case never gets lost. Even better: It has 96.5 watt-hours’ charging capacity, allowing the suitcase to go 12½ continuous miles.

Caveat: Your robot friend may have trouble keeping up with you on Old World cobblestone streets. Fortunately, though, this suitcase can be rolled the old-fashioned way—pulled by a human.

3.Wrap it Up

 
Saddleback皮质线材整理套装

出行总免不了带上设备充电器,可能会有一堆魔术贴、橡皮筋绕城一团乱。Saddleback Leather一向以制造耐用皮具和复古造型皮包闻名,最近推出了线材整理套装 (saddlebackleather.com, 四款35美元)。可调节的皮质和金属标签上都有百年保修的标示,看起来像是爷爷那辈用过的物件,这当然是玩笑,爷爷们都是听收音机的,哪会用什么移动设备。Saddleback还提供方形线材整理套装(也是四款35美元),可以把线材像雪茄一样卷起来,还有一款小型电源线袋子(53美元),可以装下一条或多条整理好的线材。

说明:用上这套整理技巧后,行李中可以多放四件电子设备。打包的时候要更认真些。

4.智能手机拍照装备

Wrangling device chargers is a necessary part of travel that can mean unsightly Velcro straps, rubber bands, and tangled messes. So Saddleback Leather, which stakes its reputation on built-to-last leather goods and trades in heritage-style bags, recently introduced thisCord Wrap Set (saddlebackleather.com, $35 for four sizes). Covered by a 100-year warranty, the adjustable leather and metal tabs look like something Grandpa might have used in the old days if he had any portable wires to deal with other than transistor radio earphones. Saddleback also offers a Square Cord Wrap Set (also $35 for four) that can store cords in cigarlike rolls, and a small cable bag ($53) to stash one or more neatly bundled cords.

Caveat: Using these cinches may free luggage space for other electronic devices. Pack responsibly.

4.Smartphone Photos

 

LG出产相机模组

LG的相机模组 (lg.com, 69.99美元)通过G5智能手机的电池槽安装,可以大幅提升拍照体验。水平握持时,可以将手机当成传统相机使用,同时提供额外电量。这款相机模组还有外置握持垫,焦距调节滚轮,还有快门和录像按钮。这款产品是LG摄影录像组件套装一部分,此外还包括一款360全景相机和虚拟现实浏览器。

说明:G5手机和相机模组安装起来并不方便,至少iPhone用户挺难搞定。而且凸出的握持垫和按钮意味着不能给手机套上外壳,不过旅行时真的很方便。(财富中文网)

LG’s Cam Plus (lg.com, $69.99) attaches through the G5 smartphone’s battery port to transform the phone, when held horizontally, into an approximation of a traditional camera while also supplying its battery backup. The phone then has an external grip pad, a zoom wheel, and shutter and record buttons. It’s part of LG’s suite of photo-graphic and video modular add-ons, including a 360-degree camera and virtual-reality viewer.

Caveat: The G5 phone and Cam Plus aren’t easy to set up, at least not for this iPhone user. The extra bulk from the grip and buttons precludes using a protective case on the phone, but this add-on is handy for excursions.
