All sharing options for:This smart suitcase uses Segway technology to balance itself as it follows you around
Chinese company 90Fun is releasing a smart suitcase that’s designed to automatically follow you around so your hands are free. Named the 90 Fun Puppy 1 (which I take to mean it will follow you around like a puppy), the suitcase can constantly follow you or it can be summoned via a remote control. The company worked with Segway, known for producing the infamous two-wheel scooter, to add a “gravity adaptive system” on the 20-inch suitcase, which helps the bag balance itself as it rolls.
The Puppy 1 isn’t the first suitcase that claims to feature an autonomous driving mode: the Cowarobot R1 suitcase also has built-in sensors to help it avoid falling over or bumping into stuff.
The 90 Fun Puppy 1 will be on sale later in 2018, though there’s no word on how much it costs yet. I have been known to idly leave behind hand luggage, so one that follows me is something I gladly welcome. The product will be showcased at CES 2018, so stay tuned as we attempt to track it down on the show floor and try to lead it back home with us.
