Bring on the Robot suitcase.

In 1946, the Italian car manufacturer Piaggio made travelling by two wheels a cool pursuit by inventing the Vespa Scooter.
Now its United States offshoot, Piaggio Fast Forward, has embraced convenience, and invented a small blue robot on wheels that will follow you around and carry your stuff.
Gita (the Italian word for “outing”) can hold 20kg (a case of wine, some hand luggage, a bounty of snacks or a five-year-old).
It won’t be available until 2019, however, and only if it’s a staycation, because it’s unclear if this two-foot-high two-wheeler will be allowed on planes.
But it’s a start …
So what other inventions might make holidaying more bearable?
