Bluesmart Carry-on is a smart suitcase that knows its location and weighs itself
Smart tech is invading every aspect of our lives, and has now taken control of the humble suitcase. The Bluesmart Carry-on is a crowdfunding darling that knows precisely where it is in the world, and even weighs itself. We've gone hands-on with a prototype model, so read on for everything you need to know.
Bluesmart's suitcase has a SIM-card embedded inside it, courtesy of a tie-up with mobile operator Telefonica. That SIM is included in the price of the suitcase, so there's no monthly fee, and it gives you the case's location on a map via the accompanying app, should it get lost.
The carry-on unlocks using the app too, and you can tweak the settings to determine how far you have to be from the case before it unlocks. It'll also send you an SMS message if it gets too far out of range, which should help you to not to accidentally leave it in a taxi or a restaurant -- or at least, you'll quickly realise that you did forget it.
