This is one travel companion you’d always want with you

Luggage technology has not changed much over the last few decades, but there is one San Francisco startup that is aiming to bring innovation to the industry. TravelMate Robotics has created a smart suitcase called the TravelMate that follows you wherever you go.Image result for travelmate suitcaseAccording to Conde Nast Traveler, the suitcase uses artificial intelligence to navigate through crowds and follow you around, as long as you have your smartphone in tow, and as long as you don’t move faster than 6.75 miles per hour. Travelmate creators, Travelmate Robotics, say the “fully autonomous suitcase” is just the first step in creating a full-fledged travel butler. According to Condé Nast Traveler, the company hopes to add a voice assistant and functionality that’ll allow you to book a ticket or find a nearby restaurant, just by talking to your suitcase. There are a number of other sophisticated features built into the TravelMate. You can say “stop” or use hand-based commands. A digital scale can tell you how much the TravelMate weighs. And you can lock/unlock the TravelMate with your fingerprint. Another great feature is the ability to name the suitcase (“follow me Mr. Luggage”). The LED turning signal lights aren’t too shabby either.
