The suitcase that rights itself

In the same spirit as the machine that turns itself off

Using momentum transfer, flywheels, or some other whizbangery, this full sized suitcase will, if placed sideways or knocked over on flat ground, turn itself upright.

       What about the self-deprecating suitcase that wrongs itself?

       Good luck explaining that to the TSA agent at the airport who's asking what all these wires and batteries in your suitcase are for.

       No problem. Just buy The Suitcase that Explains Itself version of The Suitcase that Rights Itself

       This is going to be fun to watch on the baggage carousel.   

       I would've thought a suitcase that you can't tip over in the first place would be better. Gyros or motion-activated stabiliser legs.

       Can it also follow me on hundreds of little legs, no matter where I go, and eat stuff that gets in the way?
