Self-driving travel bag

China’s ForwardX Robotics demonstrated at CES 2018 a four-wheeled travel bag that automatically follows its user around the airport. The smart bag uses cameras and AI to avoid crashes. The device can message the owner if it gets too far away or when the battery power gets low.

With a max speed of up to 7 miles per hour, this piece of high-tech luggage offers up to four hours of battery life on a charge, and it can also juice your gadgets using a built-in mobile charger. The company says the battery is removable, if you’re concerned about airlines cracking down on checking anything with Lithium-ion batteries.
