- The motorised suitcase costs $1,495 (R20 000) and many social media users have reacted to this technology
A video recently emerged on social media in which some people could be seen riding their suitcases instead of carrying them
Sharing the video on his LinkedIn page, a man identified as Jon Steinberg wrote:
"Now you can ride your suitcase instead of carrying it."
The suitcase called Modobag was invented by Kevin O'Donnel and it costs $1,495 (R20 000). It can go a distance of about six miles after a single charge.
Reacting to the video, Samuel Twain said:
"I mean really. Is this even a problem? We are so lazy now that rolling (since most luggage has wheels) through the airport (which is usually well under 6 miles) is too much?
"This is not inspiring, it is depressing."
Kieran Archer commented:
"It’s fun, that’s about it. I would get one just for the laugh."
Daniel Holmstock said:
"Good for people that have an ailment or handicap, but to see healthy people ride this is another attempt to tempt people to become lazy. Again, had this been marketed to those ailing in health perhaps, but no otherwise."
Dr Tariq uz Zafar commented:
"Cell phone batteries have been known to explode .... what are the safety requirements for this bag in the hold of an aircraft?"
In other news, a man simply identified as Emmanuel invented a car that runs solely on solar energy. The Sierra Leonian made use of materials he gathered from dumps sites.
The young man, dubbed Elon Musk of Africa, said it was created the way he had imagined it to be.
Emmanuel stated that he didn't want to come up with something that pollutes the environment like other vehicles and this led him to the unique car innovation.
