Because travel is not fun enough on its own.

Airports are big. They are vast buildings, you have to walk far through them, it’s exhausting. And if you’re running late, it’s one of the more stressful life situations. But all that can change, when you can ride your suitcase to the gate like a motorised scooter. Modobag let’s you do just that.


The battery operated, motorised suitcase lets you move three times as fast as walking. Just have a seat, open the front panel, pull up the handle and get going. The accelerator’s on your right, the brake’s on your left, watch out for dawdling tourists and off you go! Just try and resist the urge to race.


The suitcase also includes GPS tracking, so if you end up checking your bag – or if it runs of for a ride on its own – it’s easy to find again.

Since the bag already doubles as a seat, you don’t have to worry about the struggle to get one of the seats near your gate. As an added bonus, the case includes two USB charge ports, so you can charge your phone or tablet at any time – you can even tuck them away in a convenient pocket while they charge.


And any time you feel like a leisurely stroll to your gate, instead of a fun ride, Modobag includes a pull out handle for that too.

The case charges to 80% in 15 minutes and to 100% in less than an hour. It’s currently only available with a US power outlet, so UK buyers will need an adapter. Modobag’s Indiegogo campaign is already at five times its goal, but there are still a few of the early bird pledge options available, so now is the time to pre-order.

And we can all live happy in the knowledge that we’re getting ever close of living the proverbial dream – as teased by hit film Wall-E.
