The Bluesmart carry-on is the first suitcase to connect wirelessly to your smartphone so you can stay charged, tracked, locked, and underweight. Our charging dock, with two USB ports, lets you power your phone up to six times so you never have to crowd around an airport outlet again. A built-in SIM card lets you know where your bag is via GPS / 3G, anywhere in the world, for free. The scale is conveniently built into the handle so you find the weight of your belongings simply by picking it up. You can also remotely lock the bag or set it to auto-lock in case you get separated from it.
The built-in digital scale lets you know ahead of time whether your bag meets the airline's cabin requirements. Just pick up your bag by the handle, for less than 15 seconds, and the app will confirm the weight.
Our remote digital lock, approved by the TSA, lets you lock and unlock your bag using your phone. In addition, if you’re out of bluetooth range from your bag, you’ll get a proximity alert and the bag will lock itself.
Going through security isn’t fun. We've made it extremely easy to access your electronics with a compartment at the front of the suitcase, specially designed to hold and protect your laptop and tablet. There’s also a USB charging port in the pocket!

Smart, Connected Luggage
Where did you get the inspiration for your product?
After having trips ruined because of problems with our luggage, we looked at our suitcases and realized that they haven’t evolved in decades. We set out to re-imagine how a suitcase should be in this day and age, and we have harnessed the latest available technologies to solve all the problems of the modern traveler.

With Bluesmart, we have created an entirely new product category. In doing so, we have had to create new manufacturing processes to achieve the tight integration between traditional luggage and cutting edge technology that is required to deliver a seamless travel experience.
