This may be the coolest self-driving suitcase you have ever seen

Self-driving cars may need some time to arrive, but self-driving suitcase is here now.

Some of the technologies used in autonomous cars have been adapted in products unveiled at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, to help travelers with the weighty problem of dealing with baggage.

The "robot suitcase" from California-based startup Travelmate can be controlled with a smartphone app and can roll alongside its owner at speeds up to 11 kilometers per hour, navigating around obstacles.

The Travelmate Robotics suitcase is essentially autonomous. It integrates with your cell phone, and follows you wherever you go. It can even do cool spinny tricks. It even follows you perfectly through crowds and around obstacles.
