Self-Pushing Luggage Looms Near

Despite selling only a few hundred advanced orders and aided by another $10 million in funding, ForwardX will debut their Ovis self-pushing luggage line shortly. The pieces actually employ both cameras and object-recognition software in order to propel themselves alongside their owner. As Skift points out, smart luggage is a tricky category—often hindered by regulation (of things like batteries). That said, the Chinese company has advanced successfully since their 2016 launch.
