Self-Propelled Suitcase

Travel in style and ease with a suitcase that has a mind of its own. Anytime you come to an incline like a hill or a ramp, this self-propelled suitcase from Hammacher Schlemmer will power itself up the slope up to a maximum speed of 3 miles per hour. Don't worry about the luggage taking off without you, though: The suitcase powers up only when it is in motion, carrying a minimum of 15 pounds (the maximum is 70.5 pounds), and the handle comes out of the suitcase at an angle of 15 to 35 degrees. This little battery-powered number doesn't come cheap: It's $1300. Check out Hammacher Schlemmer's Website for more details.
