Frequent travellers that would rather not lose their luggage while travelling, might be interested in a new range of smart luggage called the E-Case that have been equipped with a system that is capable of providing real-time tracking directly to your mobile device.
The E-Case is also equipped with a number of useful features such as a built-in no-lift scale to make sure there are no surcharges to pay, digital locks with fingerprint biometric access, SMS unlocking and a companion app for your smartphone or tablet.
Watch the promotional video below to learn more about what its developers say is the world’s smartest luggage and is now available to backfire Kickstarter with pledges starting from $270 for the 20” carry-on.
All of E-CASE’s smart functions – a built in scale, proximity alert, real-time GPS tracking, and multi-function lock – are accessed via an intuitive, beautifully designed mobile app. Other smart luggage relies on cell tower signals to locate your luggage, and can only tell you the airport it is in. E-CASE uses a combined GPS and GSM tracking signal, and allows you to monitor the location of your bag in real time with pinpoint accuracy.
E-CASE uses cutting edge algorithms to make your user experience as effortless as possible. It will automatically adjust positioning frequency to conserve battery. A light and vibration sensor lets it know when it is in the air, suspending the GSM signal automatically to comply with airline rules.
Never worry about overweight baggage fees again. E-CASE includes an innovative scale built into the wheels; all you need to do to check your bag’s weight is load up the app on your mobile phone and set your E-CASE upright.
