    Imagine a world where you could control the minds of others…highly unlikely, yet very fun to think about. Now, imagine a world where you can control the mind of your suitcase. Believe it or not, that’s a notion having great potential. As a savvy traveler, you’re probably thinking it would be great to know where your luggage is at all times. Well, it just so-happens this sort of technology exists.

    There’s a digital invention on the rise called Bluesmart – a rollerbag suitcase that travelers can interactively control from their smartphone and auto-lock upon command. It’s a neat little device giving travelers the power of the padlock in their own hands.

    Smarter departures

    With this revolutionary technology, you’ll decide who is authorized to access your carry-on. Complete with digital locks and a notification system, you’ll have control of your suitcase through the Bluesmart app. You’ll have the ability to track your luggage’s location, knowing exactly where it is at all times. And with proximity sensors and a heat map providing reminders of its last recorded activity, you’ll gain peace-of-mind travel with technology at your fingertips.

    Business travel bliss

    Designed for today’s busy traveler, Bluesmart is like having an assistant that helps you track your luggage, track your trips and even keep track of the weather too. With the ability to sync to your digital calendar, travel apps and travel services, Bluesmart will help you know what to prepare for and what to pack so your trip goes as smoothly as possible. This technologically-advanced carry-on even uses a built-in battery that will recharge your electronic devices for more mobility than ever before.

    It's easy to access your devices, which is helpful if you don't have TSA PreCheck and have to take them out at security checkpoints. Or if you just like having easy access to your devices. (Bluesmart photo)

The Bluesmart carry-on app shows you exactly what your carry-on weighs so there are no surprises when you reach the ticket counter.  And with easy, front-pocket access to your electronic devices, you’ll be able to get to your tablet or phone in a breeze when moving to a new gate location or going through security.
