4 gadgets that will help you ensure you’ll never lose your luggage

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), despite the increased number of passengers, the amount of mishandled bags has dropped 61%, from 18.88 bags per thousand passengers in 2007 to 7.3 bags per thousand passengers in 2014. The improved baggage handling is largely thanks to investment in technology, and the success is expected to continue, as the IATA recently set a goal to reduce the number of bags lost on airlines to 4.3 per thousand passengers by 2018 by using technology like RFID chips and GPS.

But if you’re still not comfortable trusting your precious belongings to world’s airlines and baggage handlers (and we don’t blame you if that’s the case) consider investing in one of the following gadgets to help ensure your luggage never gets lost again.

It’s 2015, and even our luggage is now getting the Smart treatment.

And rest assured, that blender add-on is sure to not be far behind.
