CES 2018 preview: Unlike Modobag, the Travelmate Robotics suitcase will not cart you around the airport

Travelmate Robotics’ robot suitcase will follow you to CES 2018.  (Venture Beat, 1/3/2018)
The suitcase lights up with different patterns, and it responds to both gestures and voice commands.
The suitcases are priced at $1,100 and up. That sounds steep, but good suitcases cost a lot. This one has two USB ports for charging devices, an ergonomic handle, a smart lock, speakers, a battery, and sensors that help it navigate through crowds

Travelmate Robotics.  Suitcase comes in 3 sizes.  Available in colors other than pink.  Expect 90 days for delivery due to high-volumes orders.  (Or so they say.)
