Xiaomi lets you lock up its smart luggage with a handy Bluetooth app

Shiny aluminium-magnesium alloy makes the case extra-shiny as well as smart

Xiaomi keeps popping up with new products and its latest looks pretty handy. Its Smart Suitcase is made of aluminium-magnesium alloy and has a 31 litre capacity, but what makes it notable is that you can lock it with an app.

On the surface, it's a very shiny, polished-looking suitcase with a very glossy metalic finish and the alloy it's made of makes it more durable. It does however weigh 4.4kg and its dimensions are 550 x 375 x 215mm and 20 inches high.

The app the suitcase comes with supports iOS and Android 4.4 or newer, working via a Bluetooth connection to lock and unlock suitcases.

Price-wise it costs RMB1999 (RM1240): not cheap, but an option if you travel frequently and want a luggage that's both smart, strong and worth showing off.
