Now, suitcase that you can ride to catch your flight

Washington: There’s a new suitcase in the market called Olaf, which features a foot-powered scooter board that enables people to ride it.

Slovenian frequent flier and creator of the bags, Bostjan Zagar told the CNN, that he got the idea came from the fact that when people had to catch their next connection flight in three minutes and the gate was on the other side, they needed something to move at a faster pace than walking, the CNN reported.

After three years of testing, Zagar, who thinks himself to be a “hardcore engineering guy,” has raised investment in his concept through the Kickstarter funding platform Olaf, which is ready to hit the markets, and comes in three models: Business, Urban and a flexible version that can carry a variety of bags.

All three bags feature wheel based suitcase-style collapsible handles that can double up as a hand trolleys, and are fitted with brakes. (ANI)
