No need to carry or pull this suitcase: It follows you around via Bluetooth connection

Hop! is the name of the suitcase of the future. The sensors can be paired with a Bluetooth-enabled phone and the Hop! will follow it’s owner around. You have to watch this to believe it.

Here is a definition from the idea man himself:

A microcontroller interprets these signals calculating the phone’s position regarding to the suitcase. The same microcontroller operates a caterpillar system based on compressed air, which follows the user at a constant distance. If the signal is lost the user is alerted by the vibration of the phone and suitcase locks itself.

I would love to have one of these. Anyone know a guy at a big luggage company?
