CES Asia 2016: Take a look at the Cowa Robot, a suitcase that follows you

Put this in the list of things we never thought we’d see: Right here in CES Asia 2016, there are robot suitcases that automatically follow its owner around.

Called the Cowa Robot, this travel luggage automatically follows after you like a puppy, via a Cowa Robot tracking bracelet that you wear. The luggage isn’t just a stalker, it’s smart too - it auto-locks via the wristband tracker, there's a warning alarm if you wander more than 1.5m apart, plus it can track and find you within 50m if the both of you get separated.

While this may be the very first luggage you have to charge, the Cowa Robot also doubles as a portable charger, its detachable power source comes with USB ports. Likely because it has a battery, you can’t check it in, the Cowa Robot is built as carry-on luggage. Whether or not the airlines will actually let you fly with one remains to be tested.

The Cowa Robot will be available in June for US$650 (~RM2,614) in China, with a special promotional price now for pre-orders.
