When you’re looking to have a vacation experience that gives you the opportunity to check out a bunch of different places, you’re definitely going to consider a cruise. While a great part of the cruising experience involves the boat that you’re on, an even bigger part of that experience is what ports that boat is going to visit. Put another way, the value of any given cruise experience is only going to be as good as the places you get to see along the way.

So, with that in mind, isn’t it worthwhile to consider what kinds of possible itineraries you could take on your next cruise excursion?

This $800 Robot Suitcase Will Follow You Around Airports

DJI Mavic Pro Alpine White - Exclusive Holiday Combo,Including Two Batteries, Two Sets of Props, and One Sleeve! Save $50!

Wheeling clunky luggage before a flight can be stressful. Thankfully, ForwardX Robotics, an autonomous-focused company, developed a better travel companion: A robot suitcase that follows you around airports.

On Monday, ForwardX Robotics announced in a press release that it will showcase the Ovis Suitcase, an autonomous piece of luggage that’s powered by AI and self-navigates through terminals, at  CES 2019. ForwardX Robotics said the Ovis Suitcase, which will cost $799, will be available to customers by the first half of 2019.

After debuting the CX-1, a suitcase prototype model, at CES 2018, ForwardX Robotics upgraded the Ovis Suitcase with cool high-tech features, including side-follow movement, a GPS tracking module, and a manual mode for escalators and stairs.

Unlike standard luggage, the Ovis Suitcase uses self-driving technology and algorithms to side-follow users anywhere, including airports, city streets, and hotels. Computer vision technology enables the Ovis Suitcase to spot obstacles and move around them, so users won’t have to worry about it bumping into objects.

On escalators and stairs, users can place their hand on the Ovis Suitcase handle to switch it to manual mode. Users can wear a smart band that notifies them when the Ovis Suitcase is more than 6.5 feet away, and a GPS tracking module allows users to find their Ovis Suitcase if they leave it behind in a car or hotel.

Following CES 2018, ForwardX Robotics raised more than $1.4 million for the Ovis Suitcase through its Indiegogo campaign. ForwardX Robotics, which previously raised $10 million in series A funding, just closed its series B funding round with another $20 million. With the Ovis Suitcase, ForwardX Robotics aims to provide customers with high-tech, hassle-free travel experiences, so they don’t have to worry about luggage issues on the go.

“Most robots today are programmed to do a single task. Our AI-enabled robots can perform several different functions with very limited help from humans, similar to self-driving vehicles,” Nicholas Chee, the CEO of ForwardX Robotics, said in the press release. “We see that as the next true breakthrough in robotic technology.”

Watch: Is This Robotic Hotel Room on Wheels the Future of Travel?

It’s a personal taxi and luxury hotel room in one — and it might just be the future of travel.

Toronto-based design firm Aprilli Design Studio designed the “Autonomous Travel Suite,” a hotel suite housed within a self-driving vehicle, which lets travelers visit multiple destinations anytime, day or night.

Conceptual renderings show a battery-powered, mobile hotel room on wheels, equipped with sleeping, working, and washroom facilities. It features a double bed, desk area and workspace, shower, panoramic windows, and a retractable roof where room service can be dropped off via drones.

The travel suite will allow “guests to use their travel time more efficiently and productively,” according to Aprilli.

There will also be an indoor temperature control system, which responds to climates and environments automatically.

Aprilli says the Autonomous Travel Suite communicates through a central platform for “intelligent hospitality service” called Autonomous Interface that controls the various operations and services between the travel suites and hotel facilities using advanced technology.

Travelers would simply specify the destinations they want to visit via an online app, and the interface will analyze the best routes to take. Any necessary services can also be requested through the app.

And since many travelers would still prefer the perks of stationary hotels, Aprilli says it will install hotel facilities across road networks. The stationary “parent units,” which the Autonomous Travel Suites can dock into, will provide public amenities, such as a meeting room, spa, pol, and gym, along with housekeeping and charging services for the mobile suites.

“As a new way of traveling, the Autonomous Travel Suite will become a strong competitive form of inter-city travel option, impacting the conventional transportation and hospitality industry,” the design firm says on their website. “Along with future technologies including Artificial Intelligence, robotics, drones, among others, the Autonomous Travel Suite will become your companion, changing your journey into a destination.”

Aprilli’s concept for the Autonomous Travel Suite was awarded the top prize at this year’s Radical Innovation Award, which recognizes innovative ideas relating to hospitality.
