This motorized luggage might seem surreal to take it at face value but it is no joke! The newest generation of 'smart' suitcases is on a mission for those who often miss the flight or hate the long walks at the airport. It can be pulled like a conventional bag but the developers' idea is you not doing the pulling anymore. Instead, you'll take a seat on the bag, pull up the handle, press down on the accelerator and speed off with this scooter luggage. 

The bags are equipped to travel at up to 5 mph (8 kmph) in indoor mode and 8 mph (13 kmph) in outdoor mode. And the battery has enough juice to travel at least 6 miles (10 kilometers). So they won't be dying on the longest trip in the biggest airports. Although this rideable luggage is designed like a standard airline carry-on bag, you'll be losing about 20 percent of the luggage space to the batteries, motor, control stick and other pieces required to motorize it, so, for those who are planning for a heavy luggage packing, better stick to the good old luggage.

So, if you don't relish the exercise walk through an airport, or are always running through gates like Tom Cruise does then planning to get one might seem a good idea. 

Check out the video of the rideable suitcase to believe it:
