The company shared that the Bluesmart Check-in uses smart technology that provides people with the ultimate in hassle-free traveling, including real-time location tracking, remote locking system, built-in weight sensor and companion mobile app.
Diego Saez-Gil, co-founder and CEO of Bluesmart, explained:
“As the world’s first smart luggage provider, Bluesmart has solved many of the problems regularly experienced with traditional suitcases. With today’s sneak peek of the Bluesmart Check-in, we’re once again alleviating some of travel’s biggest aggravations and showing why it makes more sense to be a connected traveler in 2016.”
Powered by GPS and 3G connectivity provided by telecom carrier Telefonica, the Bluesmart bags can be located anywhere in the world, even if it gets lost or rerouted internationally by the airlines. The weight sensor in the handle communicates with the mobile app to show how much the suitcase weighs. In addition, the app connects to the airlines’ database to show whether baggage fees will be required.
Travelers can also lock and unlock the suitcase remotely from the app (or by using a manual key). If the bag ever strays out of range, it automatically locks to prevent theft of the contents while it’s out of your hands. Finally, the companion app provides valuable information about the luggage owner’s journeys, such as miles traveled, airports visited and more.
Bluesmart will start taking pre-orders for its Check-in bag in the spring of 2016 with the shipping date estimated for the fall.
