Flight Club

This one’s in memory of the compass.

Compact. Reliable. Able to point you north.

But it doesn’t light up. Never talks. Hell – it can’t even instantaneously blast that photo of you riding a camel to every person you’ve ever met.

For a glut of travel gadgets that can do it all, head over to the Hot Spot Tech Pop-Up, a holiday boutique curated by the globetrotting gurus at Travel + Leisure, open today at the new Thompson Chicago.

Hot Spot features doodads from Apple, Sony, Audio-Technica and many more.

Things you don’t want to miss: the WiFi-friendly Samsung Nx300 camera, the ultra portable Canon Vixia Mini and the lifesaving Innergie Pocket Cell Duo.

In addition to electronics, expect luggage and wares from Victorinox, including – yes – a few beautifully engraved Swiss Army Knives.

You’ll also have the opportunity to meet the T+L editors, who’ll share industry knowledge you simply won’t find elsewhere: the best beaches to visit right now, how to pack like a pro, and how to get the best bang for your mile-bucks, to name a few.

While the shop is open to the public, the editor sessions are RSVP only.

Safe travels, gents.
