Modobag Rideable Luggage

Modobag Meets Funding Goal in Less than 48 Hours!


Product Development Technologies (PDT) is proud to announce their partnership with the team at Modobag, makers of the motorized, rideable carry-on luggage, as they reached their Indiegogo crowdfunding goal of $50,000 in less than 48 hours!


Modobag sought PDT’s expertise in bringing their functional prototype concept to a production-ready design.  PDT’s design and engineering team refined the design for ease of manufacturing, and simplified the assembly process.  The result is a product ready for large-scale production that will save Modobag thousands in manufacturing and assembly costs.


“The Modobag team put a lot of thought and effort into this product,” said Steve Fragassi, Mechanical Engineer at PDT. “Modobag is a great design that is going to change the way we travel.”


Modobag combines the convenience of a standard suitcase with the innovation of personal transportability, GPRS-GSM tracking, and dual USB charging ports to create the world’s only motorized, smart and connected carry-on that gets you to your destination three times faster than the average walking speed.
