Trunkster rolls up to baggage claim with GPS, battery and integrated scale

• Parrack

Joining the baggage claim carousel is Trunkster, which adds several innovations to the standard design.

Trunkster is a range of luggage designed to offer travelers the "most streamlined travel experience." In order to achieve this lofty ambition, the designers have swapped zippers for a rolltop door, and added some high-tech solutions to the problems faced by many modern travelers.

The durable, waterproof rolltop door allows for zipperless access to all your belongings. A removable 15,000 mAh battery plus USB port means you can charge your phone several times on any journey, while a built-in digital scale lets you weigh your luggage simply by lifting it. And for US$40 extra, you can also add a GPS tracking device to ensure your luggage never gets lost in transit.

Trunkster is constructed from airplane-grade aluminum and virgin polycarbonate, and has a TSA-approved combination lock. Even standard features seen on most luggage gets some attention, with the Trunkster featuring omni-directional wheels that should "glide smoothly and silently over any surface," and a side-to-side handle designed to give you "absolute control and enhanced balance through many grip positions."
