Always traveling but hate the long walk to and fro the airport? Well, your wishes have been answered as The Modobag is here! I believe it was just months ago that I have seen a video of people riding their luggages around the airport. Apparently, the Indiegogo crowdfunding has been a success and you can now order your very own Modobag.
“MOTORIZED CARRY-ON LUGGAGE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO RIDE IT AND MAKES TRAVELING FUN.” – K. O’DONNELL
According to their website: the next time you travel, instead of lugging around your heavy suitcase, let your luggage do the work of carrying you around. The Modobag is a revolutionary piece of motorized carry-on luggage. With 2000 cubic inches of packing space, the Modobag can accommodate riders up to 260 lbs.
This innovative product was invented by Chicago entrepreneur and avid traveler Kevin O’Donnell. The idea struck him when he was pulling the kids on his suitcase at the airport, and wondered, “Why can’t we ride our luggage and get to where we’re going faster with less stress?”
He worked together with his motorcyclist friend, Boyd Bruner, to bring to life the vision of making traveling more functional and fun.
The bag can travel up to 6 miles on a single charge, at 8 miles an hour. It is lightweight, and can easily convert from motor to pull-behind use. It comes with dual USB charging ports for your electronics and optional GPRS-GSM tracking.
Price of a Modobag is around $1295 or roughly PHP 64,000.
