A new line of rideable luggage has just been released: the Modobag is meant to make getting to connecting flights a little easier. The line of light-weight aluminum luggage was introduced by a Chicago businessman, and travels at up to 8mph. The bags, powered by an electric motor, charge within an hour. They also have two 5V USB ports for charging devices. Small enough to be used as a carry-on bag, they retail for about $1,000.
TV commercials feature people in suits zooming through airports past people struggling to get to connecting flights. The bagβs range is approximately six miles based on a 180-pound rider. The website also reports that the bags have telescoping handlebars, quick-release footpegs, and a memory foam seat. If you want to walk, thereβs a collapsible handlebar for easy towing. Finally, every bag has GPRS-GSM Real-Time Tracking so you always know where your bag is.
