Two Galaxy Nexus units and other gadgets you can find inside Steve Wozniak’s backpack

    Self-professed gadget addict Steve Wozniak certainly likes to travel with an entourage of devices in his backpack. He recently shared the content of his travel gear with Gizmodo, which provides a rare glimpse to the multitude of gadgets of varying platforms and sizes that Woz apparently carries at all time when he hits the road.

    Let’s start with the meat of the finding. In case you’re wondering what this particular Apple co-founder’s choice of Android device is – he actually has a pair of Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphones, both unlocked from AT&T, with one being the spare phone. He also carries with him a Motorola Droid RAZR. That’s as far as the Android love affair goes.

    Meanwhile, the usual suspects include 3 iPhones, 2 iPads, 2 iPod Nanos (complete with wristbands), MacBook Pro, an iPad case/keyboard, an AirPort Express, and a MacBook Pro 85W magsafe adapter. Each of the pair of iOS devices includes one device that belongs to his wife Janet — except for the iPhones, where she has two of them.

    The list goes on with a bunch of USB peripherals, two Verizon 3G MiFis, Bluetooth mouse, and projector connectors.  Here’s the rest of the electronic device-related stuff:

    • Multiple Gameboy Lights (a special edition Gameboy sold in Japan)
    • Gameboy link cables
    • A pair of Mutewatch
    • Two Garmin GPS devices
    • Jawbone Jambox wireless speaker
    • Countless foreign AC adapters
    • Gameboy link cable
    • Laser pointers with varying colors
    • iPhone lens adapter
    • Flash keys and flash media adapters
    • Cigarette lighter dual USB adapter
    • Audio doubler cable
    • iPad USB/SD Card adapters
    • AA, AAA, CR2, CR12 batteries

    On top of those, the Woz also carries lots of pens, paint pens and pencils for his pencil puzzles. Oh, and a binocular as well. According to him, his backpack usually weighs 50 pounds (roughly 22 Kilograms), yikes! Odd and abnormal as it may seem, he admits it’s actually customary to him to carry all of the above when he’s on the road. We’ve all been guilty of carrying too much electronic devices during a trip, but he certainly takes the cake.

    Any item you find interesting from the list? Do you shove in as many gadgets as possible to your backpack when travelling?

      What does this have to do with Android?

      I wonder if most of these devices are promo items given to him? And John Stock has a point, what has this story really got to do with Android? Is the Woz trending or something?!

      I know what this article is getting at, but I wonder why the hell does he carry all that around with him. It’s a bit odd.
      And this Steve sounds like a pretty rational guy, I’m surprised there isn’t a windows phone in there too.

        Just a friendly note: Just in case you didn’t know, Steve Wozniak is a co-founder of Apple (along with Steve Jobs). He left Apple in the early 80s after a plane accident. Yes, he is a rational guy (not being sarcastic).

          Sorry for sounding like a noob. I knew who he was when I posted, I used “this Steve” as thinly veiled insult about “the other Steve”.

      I think he is just a guy who appreciates technology
