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

device will do?
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?

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.

Re: device will do?
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...
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...

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.

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.

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.

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...

I can't believe nobody mentioned how amazing the Brewie is. I don't drink beer (yeah, it is true), but I think this thing will fly off the shelves as soon as it's available.
I love the Petzi. I wonder if my old doggy can learn new tricks.

I have a broken toe. I can imagine what the Smart Socks would say when I'm walking, and makes me laugh
