We previously featured smart collapsible luggage and luggage that you can track with your smartphone.
NUA Robotics is working on a carry-on that will follow you wherever you go. Equipped with an in-suitcase camera sensor and Bluetooth pairing through a smartphone app, the suitcase will know where its owner is and follow along, at least on flat surfaces.
According to Mashable, the prototype is mostly in its testing stages, with the company hoping to make a version of the suitcase available to consumers in a year.
Co-founder and CEO of NUA Robotics, Alex Libman, hopes the technology developed can be of use in other areas beyond luggage, including shopping carts and other specific uses for the elderly or disabled.
