Smart GPS+ Luggage – What Took Them So Long?
If you have ever lost your luggage while traveling, you know how big of a pain it can be. Thanks to Airbus, tracking down that lost suitcase is about to get a whole lot easier.
Airbus recently unveiled the “Bag2Go.” This prototype is a “smart bag” complete with GPS, RFID and 2G mobile data capabilities and should your Bag2Go get somehow misplaced, the tracking tech makes it easy for it to be located. It tells you the weight of your case as you pack and Bag2Go can even sync up with your iPhone, letting you track your bag’s progress as it’s loaded onto your flight. It will even let you know if anyone other than you opens your bag. Cool.
