Looking for a way to zoom through the airport while only looking slightly ridiculous? Check out the Modobag. This line of rideable luggage has been in development for two years, and they’re finally hitting the market this year. Practical, fast and only slightly goofy, these bags aim to change the way we travel.
Not only is Modobag a fast and fun way to travel through the airport, it also comes packed with useful features. The bag itself boasts 2,000 cubic inches of interior stowing capacity while still being small enough to work as a carry-on. It weighs roughly 20 pounds unloaded, and can carry a rider weighing up to 260 pounds. Inside you’ll find dual USB charging ports to help keep you connected while you travel, along with illuminated power and LED light controls. On the outside the bag has a ballistic nylon shell, aluminum chassis, footrests and a towing handle. It also features lift handles, YKK zippers, side-mounted pockets for tablets and phones and a laptop pocket. But that’s not all. The Modobag features GPRS-GSM real-time tracking and proximity alert so you’ll never lose it or run into another traveler — at least not without a warning.
So how fast is the Modobag? It boasts a whopping 4 mph indoors and up to 7 mph outside. While you won’t exactly be winning the Indy 500, you’ll definitely make it to the terminal faster than the poor sucker dragging his luggage behind him. The Modobag utilizes a thumb-action throttle and dual-wheel braking system, along with a range of about six miles. The bag charges up to 80 percent in only 15 minutes.
Sure, you might look a little insane powering your way through the terminal, but who’s going to have the last laugh when you’re the first one on the plane? The Modobag Rideable Luggage retails for a measly $1,495, so head on over to the website to find more information on features and how to snag one before they run out.

Oymyakon, Siberia, is literally the coldest inhabited town on Earth. The town of only 500 residents is nicknamed “The Pole of Cold” and has witnessed temperatures as low as -98 degrees. Here, where eyelashes freeze in mere moments, cars must be kept running continually to avoid a dead battery, and vegetables cannot grow naturally; locals have managed to eke out a quaint, and oddly endearing, existence.
