Suitcase charges its battery when you roll it

Plus, the battery is removable, so the TSA won't ban it. By keeping your bag charged, the self-charging system frees up your time so you can drink more.

Why your smartphone needs 5 cameras

(Read my column: https://goo.gl/VhEpbZ )

Who knew that the camera in your phone would turn out to be the most popular, useful and important technology in your life?

The human race will take 1.3 trillion photos this year, according to Keypoint Intelligence/InfoTrends. Smartphones will be used for 87% of them.

Most of these pictures are useless and frivolous — not only selfies, but bad selfies that will never even be posted. Don’t even get me started about videos. Smartphone cameras are responsible for the biggest waste of storage space in history.

But much of the use of our smartphone cameras is valuable for business or professional uses, from capturing data to augmented reality.

As new apps and features proliferate, it’s becoming obvious that smartphone cameras are incredibly important. And to prove next-level use cases, we’re going to need more cameras.
