10 Ridiculous Travel Accessories

Guardian Gear Dog BackPack
CNN: There are heaps of cool gadgets for the discerning traveler. But there's a lot of junk out there, too. Unfortunately the junk often has a devious way of appearing useful ... until you look a bit closer. Just remember, when you start thinking, "Oh that's cool, never seen that before," there's probably a reason you've never seen it before.

10. The Cabin Pillow
Just when you thought the airplane tray table was already hugely annoying -- with its faulty catch and slick surface that sends your coffee into your lap -- along comes The Cabin Pillow.

3. Hotel / Motel Room Inspector
A portable black light that when scanned over surfaces can detect blood stains, vomit, feces, semen, urine and saliva. If your hotel's that bad, check out.

2. Beam N Read LED Hands Free Light
Because you never know when you're going to get an urge to knit in a dark place.

1. GoGirl Female Urination Device (FUD)
Now women can pee standing up too ... the world is finally equalized. "You won't be like a man. You'll just pee like one."
