Bluesmart: the world’s first connected luggage (Amazon Launchpad)
Amazon has recently launched Amazon Launchpad, a new program that makes it easy for startups to launch, market, and distribute their products to Amazon customers across the globe. The company also wants to help customers discover these unique products. We are presenting the most interesting of them.
The Bluesmart carry-on is a suitcase that connects wirelessly to your smartphone so that you can remotely locate it, lock it, and even weigh it. The mobile app lets you see all your data and travel history in one place. A built-in battery lets you charge your phone up to six times so that you never have to crowd around an airport outlet again.
If you ever lose your Bluesmart or if it gets “re-routed” by an airline, you can use your suitcase’s 3G + GPS capabilities to track its location. The company provides global coverage.
Bluesmart has a built-in digital scale that lets you know ahead of time whether your bag meets the airline’s cabin requirements.
Thanks to proximity sensors, you will receive alerts when you are separated from your Bluesmart. You can also locate your Bluesmart with a proximity heat map.
With the Bluesmart app, you can control your suitcase from your phone, receive smart alerts, and track all your travel data to get insights about your travel habits.
