The Smart, Connected Suitcase

Zainab Mudallal wrote about the next “smart” device – a suitcase:

  • Travelers can control “Bluesmart” luggage through a smartphone app which can unlock, weigh, and track the location of the suitcase.
  • Wander too far away from it and it can be configured to alert you.
  • It has a built in battery that can be used to charge other devices.
  • Its sensors collect data such as distance traveled, time spent abroad, and airports visited. This data can be viewed in real time from a smartphone.

Read about the suitcase, how its makers are working to ensure that TSA is okay with it, how you can get a 40% discount, and more over here.
