Tech expert highlights best travel gadgets for 2012

There are a number of things that Aussies should not leave the country without when they are about to embark on an overseas trip.

Obviously, it is essential to have your passport and travel credit cards in tow, but one technology expert has highlighted some other gadgets that people should be looking to take in their luggage.

Phil Dalbeck of travel search site Skyscanner believes that the Android-powered Polaroid SC1630 Smart Camera is a must-have item for holidaymakers venturing abroad, as the camera enables users to instantly share their holiday snaps via 400,000 applications, including Facebook and Twitter.

He also highlighted the I'M Watch product, which is a timepiece that wirelessly connects to a person's smartphone, allowing them to access their emails and text messages from their wrist.

"Travelling doesn't mean gadget freaks need to be parted from their latest prize possession," Mr Dalback commented, before adding that devices that are portable, rechargeable and fun can enhance a holiday for a tech-savvy person.
