Kabuto releases a larger version of its smart suitcase – TechCrunch

Kabuto, the French startup that designs and sells intelligent suitcases, is releasing a new bag today. Called the Kabuto Trunk, this is the company’s most giant suitcase to date. Unlike smart suitcases from other brands, this isn’t just a suitcase with a battery in it.

In particular, there’s a fingerprint reader located at the top of the suitcase. You can save up to 10 different fingerprints. After that, it works pretty much like a fingerprint reader on a smartphone — you put your finger on the reader, and it unlocks your suitcase.

In that case, it unlocks the zippers. If somebody else is using your suitcase or the battery is dead, you can also open the briefcase with a standard key.

The Kabuto Trunk features a hard-shell design with a capacity of 95 liters. It has metal-bearing wheels and rear tires. Users can choose between two batteries — a 10,000mAh battery and a bigger 20,000mAh battery. Basically, you have to choose between weight and battery capacity, as bigger batteries tend to be heavier.

Customers can also choose to buy a backpack that magnetically attaches to the suitcase. Designed with travel in mind, that backpack is expandable and can double in thickness from 9 liters to 18 liters.
