Just a bit of what-if, not serious.
So I have had a couple of situations where I felt unwell, went to bed wondering if “this is it?” and was fine within days.
But made me think, if I were to head into hospital, what would I want to take? What should be in my packed bag?
I looked at the ICU wards and beds, and it looks most of us would not want anything other than eyes closed and a nurse. We’d be probably not thinking about technology and probably would not have any.
But if you were to head to there, what would you want to take?
I did a test pack of the 911 bag I’d take, I keep repacking it thinking I’d not care if I needed it. Geek!
So here is my list of a hypothetical:
Items I own.
- LG Urbane Watch 2.
It is a watch but it also an LTE phone. So I’d enter with “just a watch” but it is secretly a phone. I can turn cellular off and turn it off and none know it’s a phone until I want otherwise. I’d pair this with an Android device NOT with me so it keeps working.
This is small for its capacity and recharges off 18W overnight, so I can spend about 2 days absorbed in my phone/tablet, no cables to a distant wall socket, and recharge it overnight.
So I’d be imagining I’d plug this every couple of nights into a wall socket.
- Anker PowerPort III Duo
I can recharge the above 20000 and another device
- Sony wh-1000xm3
Noise Isolation is awesome. For when I want to sleep and not be disturbed. These are bulky and I doubt I will be allowed.
- Anker Soundcore Slim
I have owned these for years, they are very reliable and I struggle to find fault. They are usually around my neck. I usually now have two, one around my neck and one recharged. With the Powercore 20000mAh it can recharge the one I’m not using.
- Finally the phone.
I’m torn between my devices, but with one eye on the screen not being bright to keep fellow ill awake and too small to make me squint, I think probably my Huawei Mediapad M5 8.4 LTE, paired with the above watch.
What would you hold close to you if that moment came?
I expect nothing we’d want we’d actually want, and probably it’s in a drawer away from us if we tried, so is just a discussion not a reality.
