Any frequent traveler will be familiar with the inconvenience that comes with hauling around a heavy suitcase, not to mention the fear of your bag getting stolen, or ending up on the wrong flight. Samsara’s new smart suitcase has already found a solution for this. The new technology that it employed can notify the traveler once the luggage is being displaced. The premiere product is currently 5x overfunded on Kickstarter, and is primarily hype-worthy not for its tech, but for its design and what it’s made of: aluminum alloy. Luggage firms are increasingly looking to innovate to meet the wants and needs of these millions of travelers and this technology will be helpful to them in many ways.
Designed by a forward-thinking creative team, the case sets out to blend cutting edge technology with a classic look. The brand name–Samsara–means continuous movement, aptly describing the unique wheel design makes the suitcase smooth and easy to drag the case in any direction. The smart suitcase is smart just as the name reveals, and can be connected to your phone via an app; the Samsara suitcase instantly sends you a notification when your luggage is moved away from you. If someone else tries to open the case, it will buzz your phone to let you know. It also has got the ability to charge a mobile phone using a portable power bank and also has USB port.
