The trend today in this direction, that every object is somehow provided with a processor, to him then „Smart“ call to. Starts with kettles and heard most recently on at smartem luggage. The Startup FOURTH Robotics presented with „Olive“ the first intelligent suitcases for. The case goes like a Segway on two wheels behind its owner ago and poised independently. By pressing a button Olive may even like a real Segway are mounted and transported its owner at the destination. but Cooler is the feature, that he makes through image recognition to identify owners and can follow him and that should also work in the busy airport lounges. An alarm alerts the owner, if he leaves the suitcase by mistake, Lock / Unlock mit NFC, the integrated 10’000 mAh battery charges electronic devices, WiFi and Bluetooth connection to the phone or watch and Olive combines GPS with 3G / 4G connection to the trunk to locate. So if Olive doch mal Lost Go help the GPS-Module and 3G / 4G connectivity here, the suitcase recover - no matter, where he is on the world.

Practical idea I find, especially the combination of diverse needs while Travel with the integrated scale and the battery I think succeeded. Whether autonomous suitcase should be a top seller at the safety concerns at airports currently, I dare but doubtful…
