Why Wearables In Travel

Let’s face it – today’s travel can be stressful. It breeds anxiety and worry, and turns us all into nervous nellies, double-checking and triple-checking flight times, terminals, check-in times, and gate changes.

Your Smart Connected Suitcase Is Almost Here

Do you remember when your car was just a hunk of metal? Years ago, cars didn’t have onboard computers, GPS, or remote keyfobs. In the past decade or so, however, even the most entry-level car has all of these extras. Instead of slipping a metal key into your ignition, you simply push a button […]
