New travel gear & gadgets

Blackpool SuitcaseArrives

The latest designs in luggage and the newest ideas for travel gadgets were on display for three days at the International Travel Goods show in Las Vegas last week.

For CNBC.com, I put together a slide show of the product innovation award- winners and several other items that caught my eye. Here are some samples…

4_Arm-share

Tired of fighting over who gets to use those middle armrests on the airplane? The inventor of the Arm-Share gadget thinks he’s got a solution figured out.

1_OrgoLite

“Boutique” hotel often equates to “no room for your stuff in the bathroom.”
The Orgo Lite inventors came up with a solution for that: an expandable cosmetic kit that can sit over the sink.

5_Baseball bag

Sports fans can carry their gear in bags made out of the same material used to make basketballs, golf balls, soccer balls and baseballs – stitching included. From Zumer Sport.

8_Walter + Ray BendyMan Flashlight and stand

Fun, inexpensive and useful – the quirky and colorful Bendy Man from Walter + Ray is a flashlight and a gadget holder in one.

    I really liked the arm share gadget a lot. Maybe some customer centric airline can install it on its seats.

  2. Thanks Harriet. As I’m in the UK, it’s hard for me to get to Vegas – so the update is much appreciated! Patrick
