Many times we hear of cases where people lose their luggage and because chances are high your suitcase may have many similar others, you may never find it that easily so fast. E-Case has created a piece of smart luggage that will tell your smartphone app where it is. How sweet?
For the folks that love traveling or are always on the go and have been a victim of losing luggage easily, E-Case comes in a 20-inch carry-on size as well as 24- and 29-inch check-in sizes. It also comes with an advanced digital lock with Bluetooth locking and fingerprint authentication for additional security. You can also unlock it remotely via text message if necessary.
The E-Case sells for as low as $250, and it comes in three sizes and five colors. Other smart luggage products have hit the market, but often they only tell you if your bag is missing. But E-Case has global positioning system (GPS) tracking, which allows you to see its exact position in real time on your smartphone app.
When it comes to weighing your bag, E-Case takes all of the heavy lifting and guesswork out of the process. Typical smart luggage uses a handle-based scale that makes you physically lift the bag to weigh it, but E-Case’s digital scale is built into the bottom. It’s convenient and accurate weighing without all the heavy lifting, so you can avoid overweight bag fees. If the suitcase moves out of the range of your smartphone’s distance sensor, it sends an alert to your phone the moment it slips out of your vicinity.
E-Case also optimizes battery life using automatic dynamic positioning frequency, which enables you to automatically set the bag to sleep mode at your desired frequency to save power. E-Case uses algorithms to analyze vibration and light intensity and suspend GSM signals during flying, in order to comply with safety requirements — which no other bag on the market can do.
E-Case sells for $249 for the 20-inch carry-on, $279 for the 24-inch check-in, and $329 for the 29-inch check-in. Rivals include Bluesmart, Fugu Luggage, and Planet Traveler.
