From the beginning of the 2010s, the existence of hardware objects were replaced by software programs. As a result, glasses in the 80s have evolved into Google-glasses and old flip-phones have evolved into smart phones. But, suitcases don’t evolve at all. So, the designer decided to install the smart brain into suitcases. This smart technology will be a helpful travel buddy for all travelers. With Caddy, travelers do travel lighter and smarter.
