Travel friendly design has been extended to man’s best friend, thanks to the Travel-tainer. Conveniently compact and smart for travel, this container has pop-off water and food dishes with an air-tight container for dry pet food. I guess it could work with cereal and milk too, if you prefer.

This concept design is something that might possibly become a reality. Maptor is a combination projector and map with built-in GPS. The lanyard design makes it easy to wear around your neck, and when you are in the midst of indecision, the projected map can help guide you to where you want to be. I would love to have one of these, if they ever make it to market!

No more reaching for the front door key and getting your grandma’s garage door key in the wrong keyhole!
