Hoping to make use of the quieter Easter period for a holiday, I’ve ended up creating something of a monster. What started as a family trip to New Zealand has sprawled somewhat into a chance to test travel, gadgets and games on the road.

We’ll be stopping off at some great tech companies too: Trigger Happy in Auckland, Carnival Labs in Wellington, Cerebral Fix and Motim Technologies in Christchurch.

To keep us on the straight and narrow we’ve been set-up with some great navigational advice in the form of the CoPilot Live app on our iPhone. This has enabled us to setup the entire trip before we go which should save some headaches on the road. I’ve also setup our 3DS’s and 3DS XL’s with a bunch of eShop games to help entertain the kids on the flight and our 10 hour KiwiRail journey from Auckland to Wellington.

Finally, we’ll be testing out Skycouch economy seat for Air New Zealand. This novel seat design promises to help families get more rest by converting into something of a bed platform. With three children under 10 for the 24 hour journey I’m sure we’ll appreciate all the help we can get.

I’ll be reporting back with how it’s all going in due course, in the meantime you can watch our first Geek New Zealand installment to get you in the Antipodean mood.
