We’ve seen travel accessories roll down the aisle in the market like a hurricane. Since the millennials are taking up travelling as a profession these days, there is a lot of pressure to come up with innovative and assistive products that leave you speechless. The question is how innovative? We’ve had Bluesmart, the iPhone of luggage, and then we’ve had worse and atrocious pieces of technology too. A new luggage technology that has surfaced the Indiegogo this week is Modobag. This bag is special because it transports the user to places along with being itself.
Yes, you can ride it. It’s world’s first motorised luggage, which combines the convenience of a standard suitcase with personal transportability, GPRS-GSM tracking, and dual USB charging ports that get you around three times faster than the average walking speed.
The concept is literally quite hilarious and who would’ve thought that its functionality would extend to real life situations. The perfect partner for times of catching connected flights. Have shorter commutes, always have a fully charged phone and all these plans to make scheduling travel a hassle-free experience. All the technological equipment feel sorted as the Modobag is accompanied by quick stow away pockets for and dual USB ports with a seat.
An empty Modobag weighs about 19 lbs with an indoor speed of 5MPH and exterior speed of 8MPH. The bag has a dedicated app that tracks the luggage with the built in GPRS-GSM real-time tracking.
The concept of Modobag was developed by a Chicago entrepreneur Kevin O’ Donnell. He got the idea while he was travelling through the airport with the Chi-Town’s Finest Breakers when the kids started taking turns riding on his suitcase. It was at that point he told them, “We’re gonna put motors in these!”. As soon as he reached his destination, Kevin called his college buddy Boyd, and the idea for Modobag was launched.
