Traveling could be a lot more fun if you didn’t have to be constantly watching out for your suitcase and luggage at every turn. It can get worse as any frequent traveler will tell you when you find that your luggage has been misplaced. Thankfully, all that’s about to change, thanks to one of Indiegogo’s much sought after innovation, the Bluesmart suitcase.
Bluesmart is a carry on suitcase that you can control using your smartphone. Using the app, you can lock and unlock it, weigh its contents, track its location and get notification alerts when you leave it behind. At $399, this smart suitcase even comes with built-in battery that you can use to recharge your phone – many times over.
Features of Bluesmart Suitcase
Lock & Unlock Remotely
Bluesmart lets you remote lock your suitcase should it get separated from you. You can share access to it with people you trust and you will receive notifications when someone attempts to open it.
Bluesmart has a built-in digital scale that can tell you its weight and whether it’s approved by the airline. All you need to do is pull the handle and the app will tell you if you are okay to go. The built-in scale is really one of the most handy devices any frequent traveler would appreciate especially when flying in low cost airlines which have low baggage limits.

The built-in battery can recharge 2 devices simultaneously.
Bluesmart’s proximity sensors will alert you if you get separated from your suitcase. The heatmap feature will then help you locate your suitcase by displaying the last recorded location. The Bluesmart network is also working to help locate your suitcase wherever in the planet it gets relocated to.
Easy Access to Your Electronic Devices

Bluesmart is a really smart product that is hoping to be more than just a suitcase. The developers are hoping to offer more features that will turn it into a smart travel assistant. For instance syncing with your calendar as well as other travel management services so that you get reminders about when and what to pack and integrate with smartwatches so you can control your luggage right from your wrist.
If you travel frequently to different destinations and on different airlines, the Smart Suitcase with its smart built-in scale and GPS tracking will be very useful indeed.
