Did you ever rush exhaustively in the airport trying to catch a flight with a heavy load? Did you ever fight for an outlet to charge you phone or tablet while waiting at a flight gate? Were you worried about losing your luggage when it did not appear at the baggage claim station? Modobag, the motorized luggage, is designed to solve these problems and make your travel a breeze. It is a carry-on bag that can convert to a rideable motor scooter running up to 8 mph. Modobag can also charge your digital devices, and it can be tracked in real time by your smartphone.
How the motorized luggage works?
Modobag looks like a regular carry-on luggage that you can easily tow with the collapsible drawbar. When you need to ride, just pull out the telescoping handlebar, hop on the luggage, and step on the quick release foot pegs. The Modobag has a high torque, maintenance-free motor that will take you up to 5 mph indoors and 8 mph outdoors. You can control the speed and directions using the handlebar.
The Modobag has two USD port to charge your phone, tablet, or other digital devices, so you never need to search for power outlets in the airport. Its own battery can be 80% charged in 15 minutes and fully charged in one hour.
The motorized luggage also comes with a companion navigation app and a sim card tracker that allows you to track the location of you bag globally using the GPRS-GSM technology.
