Here & There: These New Gizmos Allow Travelers To Be In Two Places At Once

by Alan Rider

Physicists who study quantum theory tell us that, under certain circumstances, it’s actually possible for sub-atomic particles to be in two places at the same time.  Until they’re able to scale this curious discovery up into a workable Star Trek-like teleportation device, however, I’m afraid we humans are stuck with our highly linear version of reality.Star Trek transporter

Fortunately, some smarty-pants techie-types have created two new products designed to offer ordinary travelers the next best thing to being both here and there at once:

LogMeIn Ignition is a handy application that allows iPhone and iPod Touch owners the ability to remotely access all the files on their home and work computers.  Simply install the free software on your Mac or PC, download the $30 app to your mobile device, and you’ll be able to view, create, and forward documents and emails from anywhere you can get a 3G cellular signal or wi-fi connection.

Vue Personal Video Network allows you to keep an eye on things at home or work from any location with a high-speed internet connection.  Set-up for both the two included wireless cameras and the browser-based viewer couldn’t be simpler, and you can add additional cameras (up to 50 total) at any time.  You can also record and save video clips, upload them to YouTube, and invite others to view a selected live video stream.
