Pluggage: The World’s First Smart Suitcase is Launched
In this age of technological advancement, it’s becoming more and more common for daily items to suddenly appear with the word ‘smart’ in front of them. But, from the rankings of smart phones, smart televisions, and smart watches, comes a remarkable gadget which may just change the way we travel forever.
Named the ‘Pluggage’, this new smart baggage comes from the minds of luggage designers, Delsey Paris. Currently in the prototype stages, this impressive suitcase is designed to combine travel and technology.
In order to access the full potential of this suitcase, all the owner needs to do is download an app to their smartphone. Once connected, the app provides the owner with pre-flight information, practical safety measures, and miscellaneous extras.
The features range from pre-flight trip information, the luggage’s weight, flight information, a notification telling you that your case has made it on board, a check lock system to make sure that no one has opened the case, the ability to charge your phone, and last but not least, a speaker.
Although the list of elements are impressive, the final decision is being left to the general public. On the Delsey website, voters are able to choose their favourite features, which may or may not make it on to the finished product.
