You love travelling, but lugging that beast-of-a-suitcase behind you as you attempt to saunter through the airport is really cramping your style. Fear not; Master hacker and Element14 member, Ben Heck, has the solution – an autonomous robot suitcase that’ll simply follow you wherever you go.

I can’t imagine airport security would be too chuffed if you turned up with that thing at the scanners, but you can’t stop progress right? It reminds me a lot of an early version of R2-D2, it’s just a shame it doesn’t come with rocket boosters to propel it over the top of the queues and into the baggage check – something for version two perhaps?
