Smart luggage: 7 ground-breaking travel accessories

What do you get when you combine a suitcase with the latest digital technology?

Smart luggage.

If the only smart feature you want is the ability to track your bag, save some money and buy a LugLoc. With a tap on the app, a map will appear showing the location of your suitcase, regardless of where in the world it is.

What can smart bags do that your usual luggage can’t?

All sorts of cool stuff, according to discoveries made at this year’s Travel Goods Showcase in Las Vegas.

In many cases, smart luggage links to your mobile phone via an app, which manages most of the bag’s features.

For instance, you can unlock your bags remotely with your phone or track them wherever and however far they may get away from you.

In some cases, high-tech features are built right into the bag.

For example, you can use your suitcase to recharge mobile devices or to get a party started — several feature speakers that transform a suitcase into a boom box.
