FOR THOSE WHO TRAVEL FREQUENTLY: What do you want in a travel accessory/gadget?

I have a school assignment where I need to design a travel accessory, as far as the general design I have that down, but I have no clue what the avid traveller's needs, wishes, or wants in a product like this are, so if any of you have any ideas post them here, there's gotta be something that is needed or wanted that's not out yet.

I have seen some that will fit like electric rasors and different type of misc stuff, but not like the weird cell phone plugs, PDA's, computers and the like.

Some people consider their sex toys an absolute necessity even when traveling

A 22 ounce Porterhouse that packs flat and turns into a perfect medium rare when unfolded.

1- Knee pads for when the stewardesses slam the snack cart into my knee cap.

2- A tranquilizer dart gun to shoot at screaming babies.

3- Hashish flavored coffee....

Sweet, youre flying with the wrong bloody carrier. No snack buggies or babies here. Not sure of that coffee though.

Seriously - A hand held programmable GPS type unit with hotel information, auto rentals, attractions, entertainment spots and top pubs would be a nice ditty to have. Too much information for a single unit to hold? Then put it on cards. Going to the north-east, then load the NE card into the unit. Off you go then. No worries there.
