Everything is becoming ‘smart’ these days. We have smartphones, smart homes, smart toothbrushes and even smart soccer balls.
Why stop there? For the traveller on your list, there’s smart luggage!
Bluesmart began as a fledgling Indiegogo project with a $50,000 crowdfunding goal, but it has since raised more than $1.3 million.
That’s a lot of money raised, but then again this intuitive luggage does more than just carry your unmentionables. It also connects to your phone so you can weigh, lock and unlock it, it has a built-in battery for charging on the go, it alerts you when you’ve left it behind, and you can even track it on the fly.
So, short of someone throwing it off the plane, train or bus, you’ll never lose this handy luggage. Just imagine, no more panicking as you wait in anticipation for your bags to come around the carousel.
Looks like you can pay for that kind of comfort.
Who it’s for
People interested in the next big tech; frequent flyers; flight attendants and pilots; people who leave things behind; control freaks who want to know where things are at all times.
$310 plus shipping.
Where to find it
It’s only available on the Indiegogo page, but there are limited qualities! There’s also one catch: orders won’t be shipped until August, but your friends and family will be happy to wait this one out.
‘Tis the season to be jolly (and a bit stressed from shopping, list-making, cooking and more shopping). But don’t get yourself too worked up, because we’re here to help you cross those names off your list one day at a time, one gift at a time. From now through Christmas Eve, we’re wrapping up daily gift ideas, so you can get back to more important festive pursuits, you know, like drinking egg nog. We’re going to make this so easy, you’ll want to shop this way every year.
