Travelers who are sick and tired of dragging their luggage through airports can now ride it instead, CNN Money reported.
Modobag rideable luggage can travel as fast as 8 miles per hour and carry 260 pounds, according to CNN. Most airlines will allow it aboard their aircraft as a carry-on bag.
Travelers will ride on a memory foam seat, using a throttle and handbrake to direct the motorized luggage, CNN said.
The bag is available for about $1,000 as part of an Indiegogo campaign, which reached its goal of $50,000 in just two days, according to CNN. As of Saturday, the campaign, which still has another month to go, had raised $105,025.
