Keeping Track of Luggage Location
It’s hard to think of too many new features that could be added to such a simple thing as a suitcase. Nevertheless, the specialists from Bluesmart company have designed a new generation of luggage that will give you a peace of mind before, during, and after your flights or travels by any other means.
The Bluesmart One has a built-in SIM card that provides worldwide GPS/3G tracking, working in association with the Telefonica - a global telecom group of mobile telephony services. Unlike some standalone luggage tracker devices, the Bluesmart One doesn’t require you to pay for monthly subscription and fees to use this feature, which is a huge bonus for frequent travelers. That way, if you forgot or got your luggage stolen, you'd be able to quickly find it.
21st-Century Travel Experience
Along with the free GPS tracking, the Bluesmart One has a built-in power bank with 2 charging USB ports in the top part to recharge your devices. The 10,800 mAh battery provides approximately from 3-to-6 smartphone battery recharges, depending on the capacity.
Speaking of the phone, the Bluesmart app is available for Android and iOS devices. With it, you can find the luggage location, open the locks or check the weight of the items, thanks to the integrated scales. Thus, you can always pack according to the weight allowance to bring the suitcase with you as a hand luggage and prevent the fees. Of course, the luggage lock is TSA-compliant, so that security officers could check the insides if necessary.
Quality and Safety
On the outside, it doesn’t that much different from any other small luggage. It has a retractable handle and 4 hubless wheels for rolling it around. As expected from the carry-on, the Bluesmart One is reasonably compact and has only 34 L of packing volume. So, it can be recommended for short round trips with the clothes for 2-3 days of staying. The housing is made of durable water-resistant polycarbonate to keep your belongings safe and sound. There’s also a handy compartment for up to 15" laptop and your documents with the lock, that is also controlled with the phone.
The Story of Overwhelming Success
To see the whole picture, it’s worth mentioning that the production of the Bluesmart luggage was made possible, thanks to the successful crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. After the start, the project has reached the funding goal in a mere couple of hours. In total, the project has raised $2,260,874, exceeding the initial goals more than 25 times over!
