first_img Editors’ Recommendations Get Acquainted With the Military-Approved Skincare Brand Bravo Sierra The MNML Leather Highlander Travel Bag Makes Short-Term Trips a Breeze When the cyborgs finally come for us in 50 years, we’ll look back at the advent of smart luggage as the tipping point where it all started to go wrong.Ready Travel luggage has joined the growing list of next generation luggage that aims to be smarter than you are. Its sleek exterior hides a wealth of high-tech features to keep today’s modern nomad comfortable while on the move.The DesignStraight away, the Bauhaus-inspired exterior recalls the chic, retro-futuristic minimalism of 2001: A Space Odyssey. In stark white, it’s like a cargo container one might find aboard the Discovery One (“You’ve packed too much, Dave …”); in deep black, it boasts an understated, sinister cool that would make it an ideal hideaway for Rick Deckard’s pistols in Blade Runner 2049. With a solid, water-resistant body of polycarbonate and aircraft-grade aluminum, it’s also clearly designed to take a beating.Smartly designed features include durable, 360-degree spinner wheels that roll silently on carpet or smooth flooring. The zipperless closure relies on simple, TSA-approved combination locks for security. A collapsible cup holder integrated into the rear provides extra space for a latte or a wet umbrella — whatever you need to keep your hands free. A soft storage strap stretches across the top to secure a jacket, briefcase, or small backpack.The TechThe smartly designed exterior houses plenty of high-tech gadgetry befitting of any well-connected road warrior. A 10,400mAh battery — good for a handful of iPhone charges — ensures that you’ll never need to hunt for a free charging station at the airport. “Electronic Leash” functionality pairs the free mobile app with your luggage via Bluetooth to provide distance alerts when your luggage is (or more importantly isn’t) nearby.It’s perfect both as a theft deterrent and for those tense moments when you’re waiting at the baggage carousel. An integrated scale also reports your bag’s weight to the app so you’ll never be surprised by overweight baggage fees.Pricing & Availability Ready Travel smart luggage is available in white, green, and black for approximately $250 (USD) with a lifetime warranty and free worldwide shipping from IndieGoGo. Expected to ship June 2017.
