The Need for Speed with the #IoT Enabled Modobag rideable luggage

Modobag Line Up

My last flight to London had the unforeseen stop over in Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. To my surprise something as simple as transferring from one gate to another between terminals seemed like a dress rehearsal of the New York City Marathon. That is why I was excited to hear about the recent announcement of the Modobag rideable luggage. At the size of a carry on luggage and able to do 6 Miles (10 km), this bag will make the airport commute truly easy.

The Modobag is the brain child of Industrial design expert Kevin O’Donnell and competitive motorcyclist Boyd Bruner. And watching the commercials it seems that beyond your travel, the
Modobag would be perfect to race your friends around the neighborhood also.
