New Tech to Enhance Your Events

There’s always new tech to enhance your events. Here, we have six tools—two gadgets and four apps for your phone—that will allow you to raise your game.

You’ve probably seen the live-score geofilters Snapchat produces during NBA and NFL games. Last fall, in time for football season, the company—which rebranded to Snap Inc. as it now produces products that go beyond its app—rolled out the same concept for high school football games. Students can snap their peers as they make touchdowns on the field and overlay it with a real-time scoreboard filter that’s sponsored by Gatorade. The app syncs with data from ScoreStream, a scoring system for high school and local sports teams.  

Modobag

We’re calling it: This carry-on may be the most useful travel gadget ever. Modobag is the world’s first rideable suitcase. Not only will it zip you to your gate at up to 8 mph, it also has dual USB ports to charge devices and a memory foam seat. Launched on Indiegogo with early bird pricing of $995, the luggage is expected to begin shipping in January.
