Slogging from one airport lounge to another in-flight meal is hardly the glamorous side of jet-setting across the country (or globe) – especially when you’re only in town long enough to attend the meeting, mission out for lunch with the client and engage in the usual pleasantries.
So the people at Samsonite have added a dose of convenience, thrown in a bucket of technology and a surprisingly decent amount of style into their new innovation, the Samsonite X Micro Mobility Trolley Scooter.
Sure, it looks a bit lame and nerdy when you think of the concept – turning your luggage into a zooty scooter, but think about the upside. You’ve packed light, you’re only in town for a day or two, so why drag your luggage across the arrivals or departure hall when you can flip it over, step on it and motor away to your waiting cab outside. The speed is hardly fast enough to get you around the airport in record time, but for weary feet and those who can’t stand shuffling behind slow moving oblivious-to-the-world types, this is the way to go.
As yet, there is no news on the price or availability of the Samsonite X Micro Mobility Trolley Scooter, but rest assured, as soon as FLUX Mag knows, you’ll know.
