CalypsoTag Helps You Find Your Bag At The Airport

calypsotag

Standing around waiting for your bag at the arrivals carousel is never fun; I travel with a carry-on only whenever possible. But the CalypsoTag promises to ease that pain a little. It’s a distinctive leather tag that you attach to your luggage for easier identification among a throng of other potentially similar bags. But that’s not all: its Bluetooth 4.0 chip will connect to your phone as soon as it’s in range, notifying you that it’s about to arrive. This means you don’t need to stand in the crowd, craning your neck looking for your bag. Simply sit and wait to be notified, and only then stand up to retrieve your bag. Better yet, you’ll receive yet another alert if it appears that someone may be stealing your bag.

At $99 and coming in 4 different styles, it’s a smart and relatively cheap way to make your life easier when traveling.

Travel Boy Carry On Luggage Is Avoiding Licensing Fees, But We Know What’s Up

game-boy-luggage-1

This is a cool looking carry-on bag. It looks like a Game Boy, but it’s called a Travel Boy. Clearly someone didn’t feel like sharing a portion of the profits with Nintendo, though we suspect that if the company gave a crap, they could probably still sue. Isn’t the design of the Game Boy trademarked, like the Coke bottle shape? We don’t really know, but we can tell you a least that the bag is all of $70, which is really not that much for luggage. Taking a look at the details, it doesn’t look like a toy/novelty bag either but something you could conceivably use in real life, all the while professing your love for the classic gaming device.

Folding Backpack Scooter

Foldable Backpack Scooter

We talked about a carry on luggage with a fold-out scooter last February, and you guys thought it was pretty neat. But that one was almost $400, while the Glyde Gear FLY is about one fifth that much, and seems to do much the same thing. It’s got a 1550 cu in / 25.4L capacity, and is made from 600 Denier Polyester, whatever that means. The fold out scooter can carry a man weighing up to 200lbs, and the entire thing should fairly easily serve as a carry on in any plane. Granted, it’s not made by Samsonite and doesn’t look as slick as the $400 option, but $90 to have the ability to scoot around an airport, between gates? That’s well worth it, in our opinion.
