Occasionally I see some interesting travel related products being crowd funded that I think you guys might be interested in.  We’ve talked about the Tropicfeel travel shoe, the Cleansebot bacteria killing robot, and the AirThrone travel lounger, among others. Here’s a few of the travel related crowd funded projects that I’ve seen.

Travel related Kickstarters:

Today I wanted to talk a bit about the NAUCRATES: Ride-On and Self-Follow Smart Luggage, which bills itself as the world’s 1st Ride-On Smart Luggage with Self-Following Feature and Obstacle Avoidance. It’s currently on Indiegogo and scheduled to expire next Monday (October 21).

All Kickstarter / Indiegogo links in this post may pay me a commission if you boost the project through my link.

My question was on whether this was able to be used as a carryon due to the kerfluffle over smart luggage and battery fires. The FAQ on the site does say that the battery is TSA approved.

Naucrates smart luggage backing levels and cost

The Naucrates smart luggage is on Indiegogo and has currently raised over USD$246,000 and scheduled to expire at next Monday (Oct 21). Here are a few of the levels that you can back the project at

  • $399 for one Naucrates smart luggage (suggested retail price of $899 so 55% off by that measure)

Again, here is the link to back the Naucrates smart luggage – they are currently set to ship in November 2019.
