Latest Invention: Micro Luggage - Suitcase and Scooter All-in-One


Micro Mobility is a Swiss company that recently presented its latest invention called the Micro Luggage.

The invention was developed to help users when they rush to the boarding gate. The new type of luggage represents a mix of a wheeled suitcase and a little scooter.

Whenever you feel like you can lose your flight, just fold down the kickboard that is incorporated in the back of the suitcase, grab that handlebars, adjust it to the height that's comfortable for you and push yourself along.

The Micro Luggage will help you move faster with the help of its rubber (polyurethane) wheels.

Due to the fact that both handlebars and wheels don't turn, you will be able to steer by leaning in the desired direction.

The luggage was designed to be able to carry load weighting up to 100 kg (220.5 lb). It can be used for short trips.

Micro Luggage measures 22 inches (55.9 cm) in height, 13.5 inches (34.3 cm) in width and 10 inches (25.4 cm) in depth, which means that it should fit in a normal size overhead luggage compartment.

Inside the suitcase you will be able to find one compartment for a laptop, one for business cards and one for folders. This will make it very easy to access various office materials.

It would be interesting to note that the firm's Wim Ouboter came up with the system after teaming up with travel luggage specialist Samsonite.

Currently the Micro Luggage wears a price tag of US$249.99.

Check out the video below to see the luggage in action.
