Weight-Detecting Suitcase Tells You Whether It’s Too Heavy To Fly [Video]
Simple spring-loaded handle helps you to avoid excess baggage charges.
Weighing your suitcase on a bathroom scale doesn’t always work, which makes it easy to incur additional baggage charges at the airport. To try and prevent that from happening, French designer Selma Durand created a suitcase handle that doubles as a scale to let you know if you’ve packed too much stuff.
The device uses a non-linear spring that’s inserted into the of your suitcases, and can measure up to 25 kg in weight. It adapts to any suitcase so that people can be sure all of their bags meet the weight restrictions imposed by airlines.
