You might’ve seen videos of this thing going viral online. For good reason too, since the Modobag looks like a good bit of fun. It’s a motorized, electric, carry-on suitcase that you can ride like a scooter, and that will take you around an airport terminal at up to 8 mph, for up to 6 miles. That should be more than enough to make it from one concourse to another and catch that connection with ease. The Modobag can carry riders weighing up to 260 lbs, and the lithium battery can charge up to 80% in only 15 minutes. Once you reach your gate, you can then use the integrated USB ports to charge your devices while you wait for your flight. Granted there are some drawbacks, like the fact that the bag alone weighs 19 lbs, and of course can carry a little less stuff to make room for the battery and electronics while still qualifying as a carry-on. But you still get 2,000 cubic inches, which should be enough. And of course, the price tag. Super Early Bird pricing will have you part with $995 to get your own Modobag, a price that then goes up to $1,199, so act fast if you just fell in love.
