Travel Gear: portable projection

Triangular designer style and 3 in 1 wireless charging

1. Scale Retractable Roller Ball Designed by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban, the Scale Retractable Roller Ball has a distinctive triangular cross-section. This offers three flat sides for detailed technical scales. Made out of aluminium, with the metric and imperial ruler markings laser etched, the retractable action comes from a twist. To complete the designer style, bring it on your travels in its own magnetic-closing triangular case. $90 from

2. Incipio Ghost 220 Qi Charging Base You can wirelessly charge up to three devices at the same time with Incipio's Ghost Charging Base, so less hardware to pack.

A list of Qi-compatible models is online from brands such as Samsung, HTC, Blackberry and Nokia. $70 from
