Re: device will do?
I'd be prepared too, to have the TSA folks stop you for an extra scan when they see some electronics imbedded in the case.  I can't imagine they would ever let that be accepted since it could be exploited by evil-doers...

workstation or dentist chair?
My favorite is the workstation that looks like a dentist's chair, allowing me to combine the experience of two of my favorite activities: Working & going to the dentist.

Double telepresence robot.
I have seen this double telepresence robot in one of the episode of the big bang theory where sheldon use it, it was hillarious. But I need to know that to operate it we need to sit at a fixed place in front of respective camera which will project our face on the robot, so how can we roam freely.

Re: device will do?
I love the computer chair. I did notice it only had 2 screens. I would think such chair will have a stand for three monitors, they always say the more screen the better.  If it was a folded chair it will be better. If one had a small desk it will really be a pain to bring that chair. I will just keep that as my home office.

Re: I really want...
Couldn't agree more on stroller technology. My son is 3 now and I had an Orbit stroller system where the base detaches and you can use the top as a car seat. It rotated then clicked into place which I assumed was kind of standard, but apparently not. Other moms were always jealous of it. I almost bought the origami as a secondary stroller but it came onto the market just a little too late for me. Ever try to collapse a stroller while trying to prevent a toddler from running out into the street? Truly brilliant stuff here...

Because if it can be attached to the bag, it can be unattached, too. By malice or ripped-off-by-friendly-baggage handler.

Re: I really want...
I want (or would have wanted) those self-folding strollers. Where were they 10 years ago? Probably in prototype. I was the key-groceries-two toddler-purse juggler. I didn't need the extra gadgets it comes with, just the ease of use.My double stroller was a nightmare; my babysitter used to say I couldn't pay to her take it.

Because the suitcase works with a mobile app, you can find out how much your bag weighs when you pull its handle, track miles traveled, and get smart trip notifications.

Not sure why you would need a whole bag for this. Couldn't these features be covered by something you just attach to the bag?

10 of those teleprescence robots, just so I can do a sweet Demolition Man party.
