46 High-Tech Luggage Tools

From Smart Suitcase Trackers to One-Touch Luggage Locks

— August 12, 2015 — World
These high-tech luggage tools are designed to tackle a number of frustrating airport scenarios. Whether you have lost your luggage or you have struggled to pack your suitcase, these smart devices will save you from future headaches.

One of the most common travel complaints is related to lost luggage. With so many suitcases traveling from one destination to the next, it is easy for one or two bags to get lost in the shuffle. In order to prevent baggage from going missing in the first place, many companies are using advanced technology to help you keep track of your belongings. Some of these high-tech luggage tools include bag-tracking beacons, app-connected suitcases and active attaching tracking tags.

Aside from missing luggage, another common travel concern is theft. For many travelers, having their bags stolen is a far worse fate than finding out their suitcase is on the wrong flight. To help prevent baggage theft, there are a number of innovative security devices, including seat-locked luggage, secure suitcase designs and high-tech biometric bags.
