Riding Modobag, the motorized suitcase

Martyn Williams | Aug. 16, 2016
It's a lot of fun to ride, but do people really need it?

As much fun as the Modobag was to ride, I am still a little skeptical about the whole idea. Personally, I relish the exercise of walking through an airport after having been cooped up in a tiny airline seat for many hours.

And then there's the price. A regular carry-on bag costs somewhere between $100 and $200, while the Modobag is planned to cost $1,495 when it goes on sale in 2017. A current Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign promises one in return for a $995 donation. Almost 200 people have taken the team up on that promise.
