If it isn't obvious now, it will be once you start reading on - I'm bored.
I've decided to make an inventory of the gadgets I own. Basically, I want to list down the little toys, knick knacks, doodads, gizmos, thingamajigs, and other watchamacallits I own.
Today, I'm going through the gadgets that I have on me now... basically the ones I carry around with me pretty much all the time. I carry a significant number of items on me, so this means I carry a bag most of the time... that or I have several pockets in all of my clothes. My pack of choice now is an Adidas sling back that looks something like this
, but is probably quite a bit smaller. Attached to it are a pouch for a phone and three carabiners. On a side note, I now want the bag pictured in the link.
Obviously, if I keep a pouch for phones on my bag, I have a phone. It is a Ericsson T68, upgraded to a T68i
. Thing is, I have another, which I rarely use now - a Nokia 6100
. This is stored in a pocket beside my battered Palm Tungsten T
, which is enclosed in an even more battered aluminum case
. Also in the same pocket is my thumb drive
, laser pointer, as well as a key fob.
On the outside A look inside the main pocket reveals other, non-electronic gadgets. In a black case is a pair of sunglasses with interchangeable lenses. In a smaller blue case is a multi-tool roughly the size of the Leatherman Micra
. In an inner pocket, a generic utility knife - a knock-off of the Victorinox Climber
. On another side note, I would ditch these two tools if I could get a Leatherman CS4, or a combination of the Victorinox Nomad and a decent multi-tool.
Of course, the highlights (pun uninteded) of my bag of goodies are the flashlights, torches, or whatever you want to call them. Up front on a makeshift holster on the strap of my pack is an aluminum 8-LED light. Powered by a single AA battery, this serves as my everyday light. Inside is my SureFire G2 Nitrolon
, a really useful tool to temporarily blind people.
I've got other stuff in my pack, sure, but they don't really qualify as gadgets, so I guess I won't be listing them down here.
That's it. I'm off.
