564. IdeaSpark*: Scooting Luggage, with better handles December 20, 2007

Posted by SparkBugg in IdeaSpark*.

I recently saw this Omni-directional suitcase (it has 4 casters) by Brookstone at an airport ($69, here). It glides effortlessly, so I thought it would be cool to add a little attachment and area for my foot so I could use the entire thing as a scooter. There are long distances to walk in airports, and the floors are always oh-so smooth. Why not glide scooter-like through the concourses? At least until the airports ban this idea.

Meanwhile, I find the typical handle on these rolling suitcases awkward, forcing my forearm to twist as if I am about to do a bicep curl. IdeaSpark*: Why not add a simple flip-out attachment (like with swiss army knives) so the additional handle is parallel to my direction of movement, as If I was carrying a briefcase. There could be one of these handles on each side, so I could choose the one closest to me depending on which side of my body I am rolling the suitcase.

Sure, they make attachments you can purchase (like this one), but the luggage companies should simply integrate this idea into the existing handle.
