More Obedient Luggage

Will the suitcase be man's next best friend?

Maybe. Here is another obedient luggage concept. Instead of radio contact, this biddable case will recognize the owner's voice from up to 450 meters away.

The Fidobag concept from Samsung-Italia will bark and follow the master's voice. Also if the bag is molested by a stranger it will furiously bark at 197 decibels.

I'm beginning to picture airport baggage claim areas with bags jumping off the carousel and scampering around like a bunch of kids just let out of school, looking for their parents.
Rich people, of course, would bring a big pack of cases that would push their way through the crowd like they owned the place. Some stupid luggage in the corner banging against the wall. Prissy luggage avoiding dirty spots on the floor. Shy luggage. Arrogant luggage.

Thanks to an anonomous comment for the tip on FidoBag.

In Italian FidoBag

I do not really think it is a hoax.
I thought it was a design concept. A future scenario, if you will.

The purpose is to describe the idea in a way that makes it feel real.
