Well, there’s a reason I’m posting this article here in Gadzooki. Â Part of it is that you guys do your traveling to tech shows and conventions. Â When you do, you most probably will be Â lugging your age-old suitcases with you half-full and coming home with it as heavy with all the convention freebies filling up the other half. Â Us geeks need to have a tech solution to help us tug our loot from hotel, to the taxi, to the airport, thru customs, thru stairs, stairs and more stairs… Â sigh.
Here’s a concept design for a suitcase that’s looks like a “tank”. Â Climbing UP suitcase designed by Woo Moonhyung is right on the dot to design a suitcase that can tread up any surface known to man… well, just like a tank. Â Not too sure though if this will reach the assembly lines but this does sure put up a beacon for future suitcase designs, doesn’t it.
Instead of using a single set of wheels or casters on the bottom, the Climbing UP suitcase features a set of free-wheeling rubber belt tracks that cover the entire body of the suitcase. The design not only allows you to easily pull a suitcase up a flight of stairs, but the continuous track means you can also pull the suitcase from the front or back. And since itâ€™s not a motorized system, thereâ€™s minimal added weight or size.Â
I hope this design sees the production lines soon… with a little touch of colors maybe?
