The Modobag Suitcase Will Help You Scoot Around The Terminal

Modobag-–-a-motorized-suitcase-3

You might’ve seen videos of this thing going viral online. For good reason too, since the Modobag looks like a good bit of fun. It’s a motorized, electric, carry-on suitcase that you can ride like a scooter, and that will take you around an airport terminal at up to 8 mph, for up to 6 miles. That should be more than enough to make it from one concourse to another and catch that connection with ease. The Modobag can carry riders weighing up to 260 lbs, and the lithium battery can charge up to 80% in only 15 minutes. Once you reach your gate, you can then use the integrated USB ports to charge your devices while you wait for your flight. Granted there are some drawbacks, like the fact that the bag alone weighs 19 lbs, and of course can carry a little less stuff to make room for the battery and electronics while still qualifying as a carry-on. But you still get 2,000 cubic inches, which should be enough. And of course, the price tag. Super Early Bird pricing will have you part with $995 to get your own Modobag, a price that then goes up to $1,199, so act fast if you just fell in love.

Neit Collapsible Luggage Stores Easily

neit-collapsable-luggage-9594

Travellers who live in smaller apartments will appreciate Néit, the “World’s First Smart Collapsible Hard Case Luggage.” When open, it’s a standard sized bag with a ton of modern, high-tech features you’d actually want in a normal bag, like GPS tracking, and YKK Aquaseal waterproof zippers. But the nice thing about Néit is that when you’re done using it, it collapses to about 30% of its initial size. It takes about 10 seconds to go from one mode to the other, and despite its transforming mechanism, the aircraft grade aluminum structure provides enough strength to withstand travel in cramped airplane cargo holds. The carabiner style handle even allows you to hang it easily, alongside your clothes in a dresser, and it won’t take much space since it’s about 3 inches wide when collapsed. Right now it’s a £150 (about $217USD) pledge for the carry-on, and £190 ($275USD) for the check-in sized bag.

Rich People Get All The Nice Toys: Plane With Elevator That Rises To An Observation Bubble Atop The Fuselage

airplane-bubble-seats

You can’t buy this yet. Matter of fact, most of you won’t ever be able to buy a seat in this ride. But there are people who are seriously contemplating making the SkyDeck system a reality. Aerospace engineering firm Windspeed is working on a patent pending contraption that would raise two seats in the airplane through an elevator, all the way up to an observation bubble atop the fuselage. The lucky travellers would then be free to observe their surroundings from 30,000 feet up. The system can be installed on any type of plane, and can come in a staircase version for those clients who are filthy rich, but not filthy freaking rich. There are no definite plans to launch in the near future, but the company is in talks with manufacturers with the goal of integrating SkyDeck in future iterations of their aircraft. Considering the lengths some airlines go to to accommodate their wealthy patrons, we wouldn’t be surprised if this ridiculous idea came to life.
