This Smart Luggage Will Even Help You Pack
Trying to fit all of your necessities into a single carry-on has to be one of the quickest ways to induce a travel-related meltdown. Personally, I prefer to reserve that emotional and mental energy for the inevitably aggravating TSA line or for giving a penetrating glare to the impatient passengers who think they should be allowed to de-plane before everyone else. If a stressed-out packer makes for a stressed-out traveler, this new luggage brand could be the helping hand you need.
The Genius Pack brands itself the “smarter carry-on luggage,” and is currently looking for funding on Kickstarter. There are interior category compartments, a pair of external USB ports, and a TSA-approved removable battery to recharge smartphones up to four times, which means no scrambling for an open seat at those perpetually crowded airport charging stations. Other features include a built-in TSA combination lock to safeguard your belongings, a laundry compartment to easily separate your dirty clothes, a garment loop for items you want to hang, 360-degree spin wheels, and a built-in TSA combination lock.
And as someone who is obsessed with making lists prior to traveling, the Genius Pack luggage wins major cool points thanks to its embedded packing checklist to help you avoid dashing out the door without your essentials on deck. Finally, one feature that solidifies the Genius pack as a smarter bag that makes travel easier is its accompanying charging cable, which works with iPhones and Androids and can also recharge the actual luggage.
The bag comes in three colors (Rose Gold, Jet Black, Matte White), is available for pre-order for $199, and is expected to ship in May.
