Interesting gadgets for Summer

A company has created a solution for commuters who are fed-up with public transport: a self-propelled briefcase they can actually ride. Commute-Case is a fully-fledged electric scooter than can fold up and become an everyday briefcase, giving city workers an extra boost on their way to work.

Green Energy Motors say the Commute-Case will travel for 25 miles per charge, but if it runs out of juice the user has to simply press a button to fold it back up and charge it up via a standard AC outlet in either five minutes for a quick boost, or a full hour for a full refuel.

The case itself is available in eight different colours, ranging from an eye catching hot pink to a cool blue, and even gold or silver, but despite its transforming powers, it does weigh a hefty 12kg, meaning the Commute-Case will give you a workout when carrying it.

Metal detecting sandals

Ever wanted to comb the beach for metal treasures? Well now you can with this very subtle metal detector that’s in a sandal! These are the sandals that can detect metal while you walk, allowing you to find buried artefacts while strolling the beach. A copper coil built into the right sandal is powered via a battery pack that straps to your calf. Using beat frequency oscillation technology, the ring creates a magnetic field; when a metal object is underfoot it distorts the field and the battery pack alerts you to the presence of metal using a flashing red light and either a gentle vibration or a clearly audible buzz.

treasure – kincs
subtle – finom, érzékeny
to allow somebody to – valakinek lehetővé tesz valamit
artefact – tárgyi lelet
to stroll – sétálni, kószálni

battery – elem, akkumulátor
magnetic field – mágneses mező
