Ok I know, I am supposed to be a fluffy bunny so what would I know about technology. Well my secret is out, I am still a bit of a closet geek and I love innovation in techno form. So here are my current personal favourite three in no particular order.
I got one of these for Christmas off my son and his wife and it is always in my rucksack. Its a tripod combined with the hand of a gorilla. It is great for low level photographs of butterflies and plants but comes into its own at conferences where you can secure a video camera onto the back of a chair or up on the top of a flip chart frame. The genuine original starts at around £12 they are a must have for anyone with a camera. Copies available at around £4
Then plug whole device into Cigarette lighter socket and tune the car radio to the appropriate frequency. Very easy to jump tracks and very cheap at Play.Com at only £8.45 free postage MP3 Car radio transmitter. Listen to all your recorded anecdotes and podcasts with ease.
Finally the LUPO MINI MICROPHONE
This is the size of a mapping pin and looks just like a mapping pin but at just £3.99 with free delivery from Amazon this tiny Lupo mic turns your Ipod Touch into a dictaphone or even narrative capture device which when associated with the appropriate app can email your recorded anecdotes direct to your email account.
