Travel Pillows, Trackers, and More for Travelers
A Travel Pillow That Holds Up Your Neck
Cori calls itself "The World's Happiest Travel Pillow" and they might be on to something. I saw this on a video on Facebook, and this travel pillow curls up around your neck and really keeps it from flopping down. That's a challenge with any travel pillow, as we found when we did some exhaustive testing on a whole range of these. It's hard to keep your neck comfortably propped up.

The company takes a different approach than most "U Pillows" because theirs wraps around the wearer's neck in many different ways...they have small colored pillows that can be combined with the main part using Velcro to stick on as you wish. This travel pillow even works with large headphones too! Coritraveller.com
A Cube for Finding Lost Stuff
I've been a regular user of the Tile device, which is similar to this one. The Cube can be attached to almost anything and it is like a LOJAK tracker, giving off a ping that your smartphone can detect and track.
Whenever I read about someone's bike being stolen, I always suggest that next time they invest in a Cube or a Tile, since it would be so satisfying to be able to track your bike down and steal it back. Cube Key Finder, Phone Finder
No-Button Polo Shirt
This sleek golf shirt is like no other...instead of buttons it's affixed magnetically so you can put it on and take off very easily. It was designed by a woman whose husband was diagnosed with Parkinson's and couldn't put on his own clothes. This is a great answer, you can't even feel the magnets and they instantly close. Very clever! Magna Ready Men's Classic Fit Ribbed Collar Knit Polo
