In the Saturday Lifestyle section of the Post Dispatch two new things are featured.
The Teardrop Tiny Trailer has become popular with people who like to camp but don't like hauling around a huge RV. When you see the photo of one of these teardrops you have to wonder how they get so much into them.
Smaller models, like the MyPod, are a simple cabin for sleeping and storage. Other models, like versions of the Tab, have beds that become benches, tiny indoor dining tables, a shower/toilet stall, and indoor kitchen.
Then there's the new umbrella for people who want to know where they left it. The Davek Alert Umbrella (129.00) syncs to your phone via a GPS chip and sends out a signal that lets your phone know where it is. This is helpful for those of us who bring an umbrella some place and then forget to take it home. It's also supposedly well constructed and wind resistant. It is also unconditionally guaranteed.
