Hop, the suitcase

The luggage that follows you automatically.

At first glance, The Hop suitcase, by Spanish designer Rodrigo Garcia Gonzalez, seems like a pretty cool idea. Using embedded microchips that hone into a signal from your smartphone, it waddles slowly in your wake wherever you go. But the thought of countless suitcases on autopilot clattering into each other at waiting lounges all over the world makes us view good old-fashioned dragging in a more favourable light.
