Whee!: TSA And FAA Approved Electric Luggage Scooter You Can Ride Around The Airport

July 28, 2016


Meet the Modobag, a carry-on electric suitcase scooter you can ride around the airport like an asshole (previously: the Chinese farmer they stole the idea from). The scooter has an indoor speed of 5MPH, an outdoor speed of 8MPH, and an off-a-cliff speed of much faster. The bag carries 85% the amount of luggage of an identical sized bag, can support riders up to 260-pounds, has a crush-proof laptop compartment, GPRS-GSM tracking, two USB charging ports, can go 8 miles on a full charge, and charges up to 80% in just 15 minutes. It's currently an already-funded Indiegogo campaign so $995 plus shipping will get you one when they ship in January 2017. As much as it might sound like I'm against the idea, I actually want one very badly and have every intention of stealing somebody's off the baggage carousel, tearing out the tracker, and making it my own. Will I lead airport security on a low-speed chase straight into the side of an airport shuttle? A man can dream. But not if he can't sleep. I think that's an old proverb. Or maybe just something my grandma used to say when her mind started to go.

Keep going for a video of people zooming around the least crowded airports I've ever seen. At LAX you'd constantly have your face in somebody's ass.

Thanks to WD, who was disappointed to see they forgot cupholders.

    Unless you can do mariokart in the airport with them these things are so stupid.

  • Jenness

    I just see people "accidentally" kicking these douchebags over left and right. 'Woopsieee'

  • Xockszky

    I'd rather not look like a tool.

    Blasting Mario kart theme in my headphones and throwing bananas at random strangers before getting asked to leave the airport and missing my flight. I'm sure others will do the same.

    I'm guessing any speed advantage would be nullified by the extra time in security where you explain to the TSA agent(s) what it is and they verify that it is approved.

    can those things support the weight of the people who woud use them?

  • That's what I came here to ponder. People lazy enough to actually buy one of these, are probably way (weigh?) heavier than the maximum load for this thing.

    please god no...

    So now you are the luggage...
    Good idea until a terrorist uses it as a bomb.
