Packing for a trip can be daunting, especially if you’re going away for an extended period time or need to bring a lot of things, and with airline baggage check-in rates going through the roof, there’s always that risk of paying extra dollars that you don’t want to. Why oh why can’t we go back to the days of free luggage check-in? Unfortunately, that’s no longer a possibility. Also, after hearing all those stories about airport employees who steal luxury goods from passengers’ suitcases, it’s not easy to assume that your baggage will be in safe hands once you hand it over to the people working the front desk. Also, with all those baggage mishaps, it’s pretty easy to lose your suitcase. We have a feeling that’s what the folks who invented Bluesmart, the world’s first connected carry-on that you can track with an app were thinking.
Here’s how they describe this miraculous contraption:
“Bluesmart is a high-quality carry-on suitcase that you can control from your phone, like a boss. From the app you can lock and unlock it, weigh it, track its location, be notified if you are leaving it behind and find out more about your travel habits. You can also charge your phone 6 times over with a built-in battery. Isn’t that awesome?”
Being that we here at The Manual are a bunch of travel-loving people who are always on the go, this suitcase sounds like it’s exactly what we’ve been looking for. Going through airport security can be the most annoying thing ever, and thanks to Bluesmart, we will be able to take out our electronics with ease, track our suitcase down, and weigh it to avoid those overweight baggage charges. Why didn’t somebody think of Bluesmart sooner?
