Default Perfect suitcase to go with your Segway!

The hop suitcase follows you around. This air-powered piece of luggage that has a set of caterpillar tracks, and is able to follow you around the airport. It locks onto your cellphone signal and triangulates its position and then attempts to remain at a fixed distance from you. If it fails at this and “gets lost”, the suitcase locks itself down and your phone vibrates to alert you. With a message that says your un-attended bag is about to be shot by a robot with a shotgun by Airport Police.

Just what we need !

Still, the idea has potential.

There are golf carts that follow the golfer around the links, toting the golf clubs.

I have thought for a long time that it would make a perfect trailer for the segway, but have yet to act upon it.

This suitcase reminds me of that, but smaller, and even less likely to work or be realistically viable.
