Have you ever been rushing through the airport trying to catch your flight whilst dragging your luggage behind you? Despite how much easier rolling luggage has made our lives, it’s still no fun to lug around, which is why someone has designed a motorized bag that will help ease the hassle.
This piece of luggage is rather simple to operate. Simply tilt the handle so the bag is at between a 15 and 35% angle, and the wheels will start turning, however, if you let go, they will stop. A combination of pancake wheel technology and an Anti-Gravity handle places most of the weight on the wheels, rather than at the handle.
The motors are powered by 12V NiMH batteries which promise a good mile and a half of trekking before they need recharging. If you’re constantly finding yourself in an airport, this might be worth looking into. Then again the $1,365 price tag might be a bit of a deterrent.
