We’ve all seen the “Many Bags Look Alike” signs at the airport luggage carousel. You could tie a colorful ribbon around your nondescript suitcase, but chances are somebody else on your flight had the same idea.
The Born To Fly suitcase really should come with one of the “Baby on Board” signs, because it’s carry-on suitcase with an integrated baby stroller. That way you can carry your child and your suitcase at the same time.
Most of the luggage we use is pretty basic. You just put your stuff in it, zip it up and head to the airport. Today, there are smart bags with tags on them to track them in the event they’re lost, but really, it’s all pretty much the same other than the tracking.
This is the COWAROBOT R1, a suitcase that follows you autonomously, while avoiding obstacles. It also has a portable power bank to charge your smartphone or other devices. Now it just needs to look and sound like R2-D2 and we will all buy one.
I like to travel, but with all the people in the airport, getting your luggage through to the airplane can be a hassle. A cool autonomous robot suitcase from Ikap Robotics called Olive aims to alleviate some of this inconvenience.
A few months ago we checked out a custom made 3D printer that folds into a suitcase. If you don’t have the time or skills to build your own, check out the TeeBot. It’s built on the same idea – a portable standlone 3D printer – except you’ll be able to buy one.
It may not be as cool as Iron Man’s transforming briefcase armor, but Jean-Luc Guillemette’s Case-Rap is still a cutting edge suitcase. This portable 3D printer is ready to print within seconds of unfolding.
Jean-Luc based the Case-Rap on the Mendel 90, one of the many spinoffs of the RepRap 3D printer.
Anytime you travel, there are plenty of suitcases that you see that are on wheels to make them easier to carry. A new bag on wheels from a company called Olaf Scooters has turned up on Kickstarter that also puts you on wheels in the form of a kick scooter.
There are plenty of replica sonic screwdrivers out there for fans of Doctor Who to collect. The last one we talked about was the War Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver. If you have a collection of sonic screwdrivers that you need a place to store and show off, this is the perfect DIY project for you.
Iron Man 2 may not have been one of the best Marvel movies made, but it had a lot of nice details and eye candy. Which is great for merchandising. Take the scene on the race track where Tony Stark’s armor comes to life from a suitcase.
The Game Boy was an amazing portable gaming system back in the day. Who cares if it started off with a lack of color? We could play Mario and Zelda games anywhere. Your luggage goes with you everywhere too, so why not have some luggage that looks just like a Game Boy?
Unless you want to miss your flight on purpose or have airport security personnel give you a full body cavity search, you probably shouldn’t stick these otherwise hilarious Suitcase Stickers onto your luggage.
For obvious reasons…
