the ‘bluesmart‘ is the world’s first smart, connected carry-on that can be locked, weighed and tracked using a phone application. with a built-in battery, the user can charge two devices at the same time and has enough juice to energize a phone six times. the suitcase has been re-imagined to solve all the problems of the modern traveler. with the company’s travel sentry approved lock, a smartphone can secure belongings, automatically lock when separated from the owner and send notifications if anyone tries to open it.
