Based on 'Flocking Luggage', and 'Flocking Road Cones' (and with special thanks to Terry Pratchett)
After coming back from Germany last Wednesday, I have found that it is very painful for the back of your feet when the handle for pulling your luggage behind you is way too short. I would feel better if somebody could make my luggage follow me, kinda like 'the Luggage' from several Discworld books.
The Luggage would follow a safe distance behind using a radio doowhacky, the receiver would be on the back of my coat, and I remove it when I need to check in at the airport.
The Luggage would be powered via a battery, which could be recharged using solar power (you could recharge it while you were on holiday in Spain...)
If it were a very looong vacation, and you were on a plane that didn't have a certain weight...
Not exactly what I was looking for, but it was pretty close [froglet, Apr 25 2005]
Flocking Road Cones
The road cones! [froglet, Apr 25 2005]
||Thank you for pointing that out to me, I have now added a little 'special thanks to' note as well.
||Yes! I've had that exact same thought. The time is ripe for robotic luggage. I want to see people walk around followed by little wheeled things that squeal heartbreakingly if they get too far behind.
||If you want to use solar power to recharge it, this would mean a very heavy bag and a loooong vacation.
