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

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.
