Gadget of the Week – Floatti Suitcase
Published on October 5, 2016
When you’re in motion as much as our Geek team, you get used to some of the most frustrating sides of travel: The delayed flights, the long waiting times, the unexpected terrain, the misplaced bags, and all of the other little surprises and hassles that can make a sweet business trip feel sour.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have some luggage that came fully equipped to handle all of the ups and downs of traveling? Floatti, which bills itself as “the world’s first super suitcase,” is here to make your business trips more efficient and your family vacations more fun – by effortlessly bringing your bag into the digital age.
Currently available to pre-order via Indiegogo and Kickstarter, the Floatti boasts a number of features that get our inner traveler very excited: In addition to practical luggage upgrades like suspension-ride wheels, a convenient “docking” feature to store handbags or coats, and genuine leather and aluminum accents, the Floatti includes a number of truly mind-blowing technical specs – detachable USB charging ports with enough power to keep an iPhone fully juiced, sophisticated location trackers, and a “smart handle” that “puts all of your most-used phone features right in the palm of your hand.”
Ready to bring Floatti on your next flight? For now, you’ll need to stow those dreams in the overhead compartment; pre-orders, priced at $320, aren’t expected to start shipping until December 2016.
