Beyond CES 2017: Modobag, the perfect luggage for the slothful American




Soon, It May Just Pack Itself.  (The New York Times, 7/3/2017)
Online Headline:  Did You Pack Too Much? Your Suitcase Know. Luggage has been a pretty sleepy product category. The industry’s last major innovation came nearly 50 years ago, when wheels and a telescoping handle were added to suitcases. Since then, improvements have been incremental, focusing on lighter-weight materials, interior layouts and maneuverability.

The latest features:
  • ports and chargers
  • GPS trackers
  • electronic baggage tags
  • built-in-scales
  • self-moving 

Modobag 
Price range:
  • $1,295 for 1
  • $2,550 for 2 (co-pilots)
  • $6,300 for 6 (flight crew)
  • $12,500 for 10 (company pack)
