The world’s first AI-powered suitcase is causing quite the stir with its Kickstarter campaign.
The luggage – which has already surpassed its Kickstarter goal of $30,000 in just a week – is set to be released to early backers in January 2019.
What sets the ROVER SPEED “travel robot” apart is its effortless autonomous control, obstacle avoidance with smartphone tracking and notifications – all created from the best mobility technology available.
As your travel companion, the ROVER SPEED knows where you are and sends alerts when your luggage is more than two meters away, ensuring your belongings are secure at all times. So whether you’re roaming through the duty-free store for deals or rushing to catch a flight, this self-driving suitcase will be right there with you.
The luggage is built to withstand the rigorous wear and tear of travel, including cracked sidewalks, taxi trunks, and automated airport baggage handling. The ROVER SPEED’s sleek design includes an all-aluminum frame built with 100% German Bayer polycarbonate, silent wheels with retraction activators, ergonomic handle with sensors, and a generous 24-pound load capacity.
Its many high-end features include a state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence powered guidance system and smart auto-follow via radar and camera sensors, among countless essentials.

- Smartphone App to use as remote control
