Bugaboo’s Smart Luggage; Redefining Travel

Luggage is long overdue for some serious innovation. The last big breakthrough wheeled suitcases rolled out in 1970. Crowdfunded startups and established luggage companies seem to have suddenly understood the market opportunity, and they are adding Wi-Fi hotspots, Bluetooth, SIM cards, GPS and inherent batteries to their products.

According to Cnn,  a standout amongst the most enticing guarantees of "smart luggage " is the possibility to track the package all through your adventures, on the off chance that a package disappears. These new luggage tracking systems are for the most part intended to shut down when your bag stored onboard a plane and afterward turn on again after arriving, to meet regulations that govern the use of wireless technology amid flights.

On September 2016, Bugaboo International B.V. a Dutch design company that makes mobility products launched a modular suitcase called bugaboo boxer designed to accommodate any and all travel needs a man might have.

Reported by Gqmagazine, the Boxer is actually made up of three parts: a large travel suitcase, a cabin-size case (30L capacity), and a four-wheel chassis system that incorporates a detachable laptop sleeve (called the "organizer"), which fits both cases. The carry-on case piggybacks on the larger case - interlocking with a slide-and-click motion. You wheel all three together until you arrive at check-in, whereupon you detach the three sections, stow the large case and attach the carry-on case to the chassis system.

Max Barenbrug, the Dutch designer, and co-founder of the phenomenally successful Bugaboo was aiming to address five issues of travel. "I wanted a system that would hold everything together in an organized way," he said. A modular approach with a chassis on wheels that could work with several types and sizes of luggage. He also wanted it to be a comfortable product to push with joy that had easy maneuverability.
