Feather Tech

Extremely lightweight gadgets for easy travel-ability

Implications - Gone are the days when the only technology a person might carry while on the go was a Polaroid camera. Today's more tech-savvy consumer typically has a smartphone as well as a laptop or tablet, perhaps even a separate camera. This means that tech gadgets today must be designed for better portability -- they must be more sleek and extremely lightweight. As such, more and more "featherweight" computers, tablets and other devices are making their way into the marketplace, made for the tech-burdened consumer who can't part with any of his gadgets.
