Robot suitcase that follows you around18-10-2012 11:51It has been every traveler’s dream and it is just about to become true! Hop suitcase is the first robotic suitcase that follows you around the airport, so you don’t have to drag it.
The following suitcase represents the next generation of luggage and it is anticipated to be a life-changing invention in the field of traveling. The suitcase is actually connected with the user via user’s smartphone. The suitcase contains three receivers that are able to receive, identify and interpret different signals calculating the position of the phone regarding to the suitcase.
The moving system of the suitcase is based on compressed air, following the user at a constant distance. If the signal is lost the user is alerted by the vibration of the phone and suitcase locks itself. The suitcases can be also programmed to follow one to another or can be controlled jointly by the handling staff of the airport.
A suitcase that can move by itself could improve the way disabled people travel, or help a large number of families and elderly but could also change the way airports move by sparing conveyor belts and carts.
The inventors behind it have developed a prototype with the technology that is present today in lawn mowers or automatic vacuum cleaners. With the hands-free “Hop” suitcase you couldn't leave your luggage unattended even if you tried!
Although the Hop suitcase is in prototype form at this point, it is an interesting peek at where luggage may go someday in the near future.
