Bluesmart Is The First Connected Smart Luggage

bluesmart-1

If you consider yourself a modern day traveller, you’re really going to want to take a look at Bluesmart. It’s the “world’s first” connected smart luggage, and it actually packs a host of features that have us salivating here at OhGizmo HQ. Check this out:

– TSA-approved lock that can be toggled via the application.
– A proximity sensor will send you a notification if it senses you’re leaving your bag behind.
– A built-in scale in the handle tells you your bag’s weight.
– Location tracking in case of loss (although this is based on the potential proximity of other Bluesmart travellers within range).
– Built-in battery to recharge your electronics (a typical phone up to 6 times over).
– Easy-access front flap to reach your electronic devices within.
– Trip data tracking.

It’s a good looking piece of luggage to boot. The cherry on the icing is that the company isn’t asking for an outrageous sum; the Indiegogo Early Adopter pricing is set at $215 for the moment, and will go up to $235 once that’s over. Delivery is far away, however, with August 2015 slated as the target.

    There are no weight limits on carryon and you carry your luggage with you everywhere so why do I need to track it or scale? Why is the case so heavy not practical. I do not see a warranty? Every company offers a warranty what if the electronics to not work or break? I also I did some research and they claim they are “the worlds first” but it looks to me they copied this idea from bags2go?
