As a business traveller on the road, it's essential to have the right things with you to make your journey more comfortable living out of a suitcase. If you are a frequent business traveler, these are the must-have products currently on the market
Noise Canceling Headphones
Voted the best noise canceling headphones The Bose QuietComfort 25 has already become a must have for air travel. It's not only great for listening to music on the go, but also perfect for sleeping as it can block out noise. You don't have to be kept awake by the crying baby behind you. These headphones are so good that a number of airlines offer them to their first-class passengers for use during the flight.
It does look funny, but the Ostrich Pillow is an extremely useful accessory for when you're on the go and just need a quick nap to refresh and increase productivity. Envisioned by Kawamura-Ganjavian architecture and design studio, this groundbreaking product prevents jet lag – a common problem for long distance travellers – by providing you with a micro sleeping environment.
Although it might seem a little weird, its design is fun and intuitive, featuring polystyrene filling and a soft interior that allows you to sleep anytime, anywhere without being distracted by noise, light, and other things going on around you.
Handheld Personal Navigator
Have you ever been lost in a new city while heading to a business meeting? What you need is a navigator, specifically the Asus R300 Handheld Personal Navigator. Whether you're walking, driving, or commuting, it gives you directions to your desired location. It's also an "entertainment hub" and can carry photos, music files, even videos on board as well as in external Micro SD cards.

When a battery of one device is low, simply plug in STROMR, connect to another device, and top up. The cable also works for transferring files.
