Here's an odd product from Samsung-Italia. It's the Fidobag
. The site explaining the Fidobag is in Italian, but apparently it's a suitcase that will respond to the voice of its owner and come at their command (that would be useful for finding a bag in an airport). Also, if someone tries to steal your bag, all you need do is call out and the Fidobag will start to 'bark' at an intensity of 197.5 decibels, thereby stunning and exposing the would-be thief. Gizmodo
offers a more complete translation of the site. Although the Fidobag does seem like it would be useful, it just seems way too odd to actually be real.
