Airbus Bag2Go Smart Luggage: All It Needs to Do Now Is to Follow Me Automatically

by Range

Luggage hasn’t changed much in the last few decades, but there’s hope on the horizon. How about having suitcases with built-in GPS that you will never lose again? I’d certainly consider that, since losing your luggage can certainly get painful at times.

The Airbus Bag2Go is a prototype and it’s a sort of “smart luggage,” carrying sensors that work with an app in order to bypass the usual airport BS. It has got an RFID that lets travelers check in their bags and link to it on every step of their itinerary. GPS tracking will alert travelers to potential tampering. The luggage is being developed by Rimowa and T-Mobile.

While spending a lot of money on luggage isn’t my cup of tea, renting one of these on long trips could be quite useful.
