The world's first smart, connected carry-on luggage is coming from an IndieGoGo venture. It is called Bluesmart.

If you don't like checking your carry-on bag on flights, this carry-on is made for you. Bluesmart has a built-in digital scale so you can find out its weight and whether it's approved by the airline. Just pull the handle and the app will tell you if you are ok to go.

You can lock the suitcase from your smartphone, and it will automatically lock itself when separated from you. You can also share access with people you trust. The Bluesmart Travel Sentry® Approved Lock will be accepted by the TSA, according to the company's website. Speaking of TSA, Bluesmart contains a readily accessible compartment to hold electronics that must be checked by TSA.

If you're the one who can't ever seem to find a convenient place to charge your phone while at the airport or on the road, Bluesmart has you covered. It is included with a super-powerful battery charger that can charge two devices at the same time. So, whether it is your smartphone, tablet or ebook reader, your devices can stay charged. The suitcase battery will enable you to recharge your smartphone six times over.

The amenities don't stop there. Bluesmart can track the geolocation of your suitcase anywhere in the world from your app or the company's website. Concerned someone might move your luggage while you're getting coffee? You can set a distance alert to get real-time reports to locate your Bluesmart with a proximity heat map. You can also get real-time reports with all the data from your trips, including miles traveled, airports visited and more.

So, what's the price for a Bluesmart? The Super Early Adopter price of $195.00 is sold out. However, there is still time to get in at the Early Adopter price of $215.00 USD plus $20 shipping and handling within the U.S., $40 for shipping internationally.

If you're in a hurry to start testing it out, cool your jets; the estimated ship date for Bluesmart is August 2015.
