OVIS BY FORWARDX
A smart suitcase capable of following you around on its own, the Ovis sounds like something from science fiction.

Simply walk along and it will follow you, even in crowded areas. It’s TSA-approved, and the 34-liter capacity makes it the perfect carry-on bag for short trips. It might take some getting used to at first, but soon enough we might all have robot suitcases following us around. $799.

All the while, the captain navigates the yacht into secluded coves; to pristine, seemingly undiscovered beaches; or even to the hottest spots along the coast for a night out on the town.
