Attaching A Scooter To A Carry-On Bag? If That’s Not Genius, What Is?

scootcase-micro-samsonite

It’s been out for a bit, so bear with us. But having seen the Micro Luggage Scootcase for the first time only recently, we were duly impressed and decided to write about it anyway. It’s a hard-shell, cabin-sized luggage with a built-in kickboard scooter! Running late to catch your next flight? Deploy the scooter, roll past everyone and arrive at your gate on time without even breaking a sweat. It’s genius.

It was developed by Micro, a Dutch scooter company, in conjunction with Samsonite over a period of 3 years (no word on why it would take 3 years to develop something like this), so you know you’re not getting some cheap piece of garbage. The scooter is non-detachable so if some overzealous TSA agent takes a power-trippy objection to it, you may have some problem. But we don’t think there’s any regulation against scooters in airports, is there? Better be sure, because as cool as this is, it’s not cheap: €299, or about $390.

    It’s approved cabin baggage. You’ll get a lot of attention in the aiport, both from amazed passengers as you fly past, and the security people who all want to check it out and congratulate you on a cool case! We’ve flown with it all round Europe and the US and never had a problem.
