Like many things around us, suitcases are getting smarter, as luggage makers are looking to offer buyers more interesting features to help out during travels. The Space Case 1, currently raising money on Kickstarter, claims to be the world’s most advanced smart suitcase yet.

The project has already passed its $50,000 funding goal by convincing 430 backers to pledge more than $150,000, with 26 days left in the campaign.

The iPhone- or Android-controlled Space Case 1 packs a fingerprint sensor, global GPS tracker, self-weighing scale, speakerphone and power bank. The luggage also complies with IATA and most airline regulation carry-on requirements, Planet Traveler says on the Kickstarter page.

The cheapest Space Case 1 costs $249 on Kickstarter (depending on size), and should ship anywhere in the world this November – the final price of the device should be $600 to $700 (depending on size), according to Planet Traveler.

A video showing the smart features of the Space Case 1 follows below.
