Self-propelled suitcase makes traveling a bit easier

Traveling is enough of a pain these days without having a super-heavy suitcase to lug around. You have to deal with increased security and decreased legroom, paying dearly for both. But what if your suitcase could help a bit with the heavy lifting? That could make traveling at least a little bit more bearable.

This self-propelled suitcase lugs itself so you don't have to at speeds of up to 3MPH. A 5 hour charge provides about 2.25 hours worth of juice, which should be plenty for wheeling around various airports. The convenience will cost you, however, with this handy suitcase costing a whopping $1,300. But hey, you're totally worth it.
