This Hands-Free Robot Suitcase Follows You Around The Airport

Live that schlep-free life.

If you think your travel bag's cool because it has wheels that can roll a full 360 degrees, well, we've got a new definition of cool for you. Cool is when a suitcase can follow you around on its own -- hands-free.

This isn't the suitcase of our imagination or some contraption featured on the "Jetsons." Israeli company NUA Robotics has developed a suitcase of the future, a carry-on piece of luggage that uses a camera sensor and Bluetooth pairing to follow its owner.


The smart suitcase sends real-time data (like weight) to your smartphone and has an anti-theft alarm to ensure nobody with a plain, ordinary suitcase gets any funny ideas. It even has the ability to charge your smartphone, tablet and other devices, because nothing's worse than having your phone die while you're in the middle of a Candy Crush marathon on a six-hour flight.

This suitcase of our dreams is still in its testing phase, but Alex Libman, co-founder and CEO of NUA Robotics, told Mashable he plans to have it market-ready in a year's time. We've reached out to find out how much this thing may cost, but in the meantime, let's keep dreaming big.

Watch this bad boy go in Mashable's video below.
