Indiegogo success Bluesmart has successfully secured over $1 million from more than 2000 backers during its latest crowdfunding campaign for its Series A Smart Luggage. The campaign was launched less than two weeks ago and sought to raise only $50,000.
As previously reported, the Series 2 line includes a carry-on luggage, a checked bag, a laptop bag, and a passport pouch. Powered by its second-generation technology, all products connect to Bluesmart’s new app, to work as a system assisting travelers along their journey. The line brings upgraded materials, expanded capacity, colors and a new sleek, look. The Series 2 line is compliant with all major aviation and transportation regulators (FAA, DOT & TSA). Bluesmart revealed:
“Bluesmart is a high-quality carry-on suitcase that you can control from your phone, like a boss. From the app you can lock and unlock it, weigh it, track its location, be notified if you are leaving it behind and find out more about your travel habits. You can also charge your phone 6 times over with a built-in battery. Isn’t that awesome?”
Tomi Pierucci, co-founder and CEO of Bluesmart, recently stated:
“The travel experience is in desperate need of an upgrade. We started a revolution three years ago with the creation of the world’s first smart suitcase, now being used in more than 100 countries. Our ultimate goal is to make the traveler’s journey as enjoyable as the destination. Series 2 is a further step in that direction, incorporating the feedback and ideas from thousands of users and harnessing the latest technologies.”
Bluesmart raised $2 million through its first crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo for the first generation suitcases. The company is looking to close the latest funding round at the end of July and begin shipping the new line to backers sometime in November.
