A Carry-On Bag You Can Ride Around the Airport

Here's a novel way of getting around the airport: hitching a ride on your carry-on bag.

A contraption called Modobag lets you do just that. Equipped with an electric motor, it's a suitcase you can sit on and ride at speeds of up to 8 miles per hour. It has a range of about 8 miles, a size and battery that you can take on planes, and a memory foam seat strong enough to support a rider weighing up to 260 pounds. 

Modobag is available for $1,000 via an Indiegogo campaign that has already reached its funding goal of $50,000. Bags will start being shipped out to customers in January 2017.
