If you imagine travel before the age of airplanes, you realize that the modern world has it good. Today you can get anywhere in the world in a matter of hours. Before the age of aviation, if you wanted to get a couple hundred miles from where you were, you drew up the horse and buggy and it took you a matter of days, weeks, or months to arrive at your destination depending on how far away it was.
Even worse, there was no air conditioning, and there was not the same luxury items that are available today to make the trip go by faster. It was up to each individual to find out how to entertain themselves. When the rag dolls and stacking of rocks got old, you probably sat there with your butt on your hands until you arrived at the next stop where you could set up camp and run around a bit to burn off some energy before you packed it all back up the next morning and did the same thing all over again.
Thankfully today you have airplanes and technology to make travel efficient as well as entertain you, so here are 3 ways you can use technology to your advantage on an airplane:

Get Headphones to Serve Multiple Purposes
Unless you’re suffering from hearing loss and the noise of the cabin doesn’t bother you, chances are good you’re going to want to get yourself a pair of headphones to serve multiple purposes. One, when you get on the plane and you do the whole introducing yourself to the person you’re going to be sitting awkwardly close to for the next several hours of your life, you can then throw on the headphones and not talk to them for the remainder of the flight.
In addition to this, you can listen to music or watch movies on your electronic device, or if you’re lucky, the plane will have a list of things for you to choose from on a television screen located in the back of the seat right in front of you. If neither of these options suit you, you could always use the headphones to dampen the noise around you so you can sleep peacefully on the flight. In any case, these headphones can do all the tricks.
Get An All in One Charger
Thankfully today, most airplanes are going to have the capability for you to charge any one of your electronic devices, but that’s just the problem. If you’re a normal person, you probably have more than one thing to charge. In fact, you probably have more like ten and they all have different hookups.
If you want to be able to use all your technology to pass the time, heighten your experience, or make it easier on your, you’re going to want to bring an all in one charger with you. This way, you only need one outlet, but you get to charge everything.
