Sick of having to do drag your luggage around? Travelmate is here. The robotic suitcase will follow you through the airport, even avoiding obstacles and crowds.
The suitcase can reach speeds of about seven-miles-per-hour and will cost you $399 if you donate to Travelmate’s IndieGoGo page. So far, the campaign has already reached over 200% of its fundraising goal.
“It has practical applications in places like offices and hospitals. In medical settings, you can attach things like health monitoring devices or IV bags, which will make it easier for patients to move around,” a spokesperson explains. “In disaster areas or emergency situations, it can act as a mobile laboratory for local relief efforts. It can carry stuff for everyone from students to [senior citizens].”
