Spring break is just around the corner, so why not travel in smart?
We’ve all been there! Rushing to get on your flight and you have to weigh your luggage, only to discover that your luggage is too heavy…yikes! What if there were inter-connected products that could take this kind of pressure off your back? What if you had a suitcase that was capable of weighing itself? This would save you time, wouldn’t it? Imagine you could even control your luggage from your smart phone app…like locking and unlocking it for instance or track its location, or get notified if you are leaving it behind and perhaps, best of all, learn more about your own personal traveling habits. Hmmm, sound too sci-fi?
