In today’s world, where everything is “smart,” rest assured that luggage will be trending in the same direction.
Although rustic trunks will always have a place in the heart of some nostalgic travelers, those who yearn to ride on the next wave of technology will be ecstatic for what’s to come. For a travel essential that hasn’t been updated in more than decades, many companies are rethinking innovative ways to construct luggage with built-in tools and apps that better our travel experiences.
Just take a look at Samsonite and Samsung’s latest collaboration: Samsonite’s Tru-Frame collection with built-in weight scales (USD $750-840.) Announced back in May and released in stores this month, the new collection’s aluminum multi-stop trolley system also come with soft-touch carry handle. The new design incorporates high security with double recessed locks. The production team is currently looking into creating bags with Bluetooth technology, so they can self-propel and follow their owners with the ability to send messages as soon as they’re on the baggage claim carousel.
