Airports and waiting are synonymous, so what do you do with your bags when you feel like walking around or having a snooze? The Luggage Sitter is a smart proposal for the traveler who feels the need for greater safety and protection when it comes to his possessions.

A team of designers including Huang Yichen and associates came up with this concept, winning themselves a 2013 Red Dot Design Award. Basically, the wheeled suitcase has a detachable handle that, when drawn out, reveals a pair of extending cut-proof cables. Wind the handgrip around the armrest of a chair, around a gate or a cart, and the Luggage Sitter can be locked in place to guarantee that your stuff won't be stolen.
