What's in your bag? is a recurring feature where we ask people to tell us a bit more about their everyday gadgets by opening their bags and hearts to us. Show us your bag in this forum post. This week, we're featuring Dieter Bohn.


The Consumer Electronics Show begins next week and The Verge will be there in full force to cover everything we're expecting and more than a few things that we're not. To prepare for both, I tend to go a little overboard in preparing my bag. This isn't what my bag looks like for my daily commute, but it's actually not all that far off.


My basic approach in preparing for CES is redundancy: if it was good enough for NASA, it's good enough for me. Whether it's batteries, connectivity, cameras, or just taking notes, I prefer to have at least two of everything if it's at all possible. Sometimes more. I've become the de-facto guy who has a spare USB cable or even a phone, so I have a reputation to uphold as I set up my kit.
