Killing four hours on Concourse C at the Baltimore Airport just sucks. Plain & simple. But, if you could ride your suitcase around like a Segway it might not suck as bad. The Move-On series of suitcases from the strategic thinkers at Agent is rolling in the right direction. They have introduced a new twist – luggage that instead of being dragged along behind you, pushes you forward. Three models: Strolln, Surfn & Ridn all have multiple ride/fun functions to make getting through the airport just a bit cooler. Even in Baltimore.

The new can features the futuristic smart straw sprayer & the old can looks like a movie prop from the 50s, but still lubes like its 2010.
