Summer may be winding down, but it’s never too early to start thinking about your next vacation. We’ve all got gadgets that are difficult to live without, but we can’t always bring them all with us. That is, unless you’re Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak. He brings everything when he travels. Woz recently shared this photo of the extensive number of gadgets he travels with:
Weighing in at a whopping 50 pounds, Wozniak packs: 4 iPhones, 2 iPads, a handful of Android devices, and plenty of other gadgets. However, Woz noted the overloaded backpack can sometimes cause a problem getting through airport security: “a couple of times they asked me to take out everything electronic, and I asked for seven bins, all of which I filled (only 2 half-size), plus my MacBook Pro, plus the bag. All of that through the X-ray machine. Then repack it,” he told Gizmodo. According to their article, the photo above doesn’t even include everything! Here’s some of the other stuff Woz carries with him:
• the AirPort Express and MacBook Pro 85W magsafe adapter, which are out of sight in this photo, • bluetooth mouse, • binoculars, • projector connectors, • multiple Gameboy Lights (a Gameboy sold in Japan but never in the U.S.), • Gameboy link cables, • plenty of foreign AC adapters, • prism glasses for watching movies in bed, • sunglasses, • earplugs for concerts, • Ultimate Ears UE18 earplugs for flights, • Gameboy link cable, • tons of pencils for pencil games on flights, • tons of pens, • tons of sharpies, • tons of paint pens (signing), • red-blue-purple-yellow-green laser pointers, • credit cards, • hotel cards, • airline cards, • hard rock card, • medical cards, • small accessories like olloclip iPhone lens adapter, • Square, • flash keys, • flash media adapters, • cigarette lighter dual USB adapter, • audio doubler cable, • iPad USB/SD Card adapters, • toiletries for hotels, • batteries of many types (AA, AAA, CR2, CR128, odder types for things like my bag beeper for locating my suitcase) • eyedrops, • $2 bill pads, • pencil puzzles, • itineraries for upcoming travel…
