Travel Tech Next: Floatti Is Everything You Ever Wanted In A Carry-On Case

We imagine a suitcase that can do just about everything might be of use to you, the weary traveler.

That’s what Floatti boasts of being: a carry-on solution that is durable, stylish and smart.

Its creators just finished a triumphant campaign on Indiegogo, raising over $620,000 as of May 6, surpassing its goal at a rate of 531 percent.

You could say that people believe in a suitcase that solves just about every issue you can imagine with carry-on luggage.

The following video walks us through the details, illustrating the impeccable style as well as the technology of the bag, which even includes a smart handle.

While the campaign has ended, you can still pre-order your Floatti for $320 from Indiegogo. The carry-on version will be delivered by December and comes with a Floatti, two belonging trackers, mobile charger and protective cover.

When delivered, you get a tech-savvy suitcase that lists a bevy of amenities.

It has a strap that will let you pack your purse or personal bags on top of your carry-on, super sweet wheels that promise to move with every bang and bump along the way, a charger, tracking device for your other personal items and a handle that controls your phone.

It’s like they read our minds.

We have ambled around airports fiddling with our luggage and our phone/audio device for years.

Now we can handle some of our most obvious business with the flick of the finger, changing songs and calling friends like travel champions.

And if you’re the forgetful type, there is a tracker that ensures your most precious items remain in range.

At this point, having a mobile charging station is icing on the cake. But, as we now know, with Floatti you can have your cake and its delicious icing.

We eagerly await the end of the year to see if this is too good to be true or simply just too good.
