CES Tech For Business Travelers


Skyted is a revolutionary sound-absorbing open-air mask that provides unparalleled privacy in public spaces. Developed by the French company based in Toulouse, Skyted was created to offer an innovative solution for people who are looking for more efficient privacy options when traveling or working outdoors. The product consists of a breathable fabric mask with a built-in noise-absorbing filter, which ensures complete acoustic insulation and discourages eavesdropping. With its adjustable size and shape, the mask can be easily adapted to most face sizes, providing users with maximum comfort and convenience. Moreover, the unique mask uses advanced filtering technology to reduce wind noise significantly. This makes it ideal for use in areas with strong winds, such as airports or train stations. Skyted is designed to be lightweight and comfortable while still providing excellent protection from external sounds and distractions. Thanks to its highly effective sound-insulating properties, users can remain anonymous and enjoy a greater degree of personal space while out in public.

Nuwa Pen

Never lose another idea on a bar napkin or paper scrap. With today’s constant on-the-go lifestyle, it’s easy to misplace (or forget) notes. The revolutionary Nuwa Pen allows users to create an electronic backup for everything they write with the pen. Use the device like a regular pen (it even uses standard pen ink cartridges) while motion sensors capture the pen’s activity. The accompanying Nuwa Pen app then allows users to locate and organize notes. When it’s time to recharge, users only need to put the pen into its charging case (recharging takes 15 minutes).

Kingston has a fantastic line of products perfect for business travelers concerned with security with the collection of IronKey flash drives. The Kingston IronKey Locker+ 50 Encrypted Flash Drive is a secure, powerful data storage solution that offers top-tier performance and innovative features.
