A suitcase that doubles as a scooter: introducing Race Case

As most of us seem to a major portion our lives in airports, we share many of the same grumbles. The inability to get a really decent coffee at 3am, too long taxi queues, and constantly racing to a gate that always seems to be at the far end of the terminal.

Well, we may not be able to help with the taxi (and as for the coffee, invest in a flask), but help is definitely at hand for getting across the airport.

The guys at SuitSupply (a fairly well-travelled bunch) have just come up with the perfect travel accessory: the Race Case - a suitcase that doubles as a scooter.

Hard-sided, and carry-on size, this case is in a stylish brown, with a pleasingly ergonomic shape. It has an extendable handle and sturdy wheels, and looks like a sleek suitcase, for the most part.

Then, with a flick of a switch, a metal panel from the back drops down, making a platform. Suddenly it is transformed into a three-wheel scooter, perfect for speeding down concourses, and sailing past fellow travellers. Arriving at the gate in style and in good time means you need never miss another flight, and given that it simply folds up to fit into the overhead locker means this might be the perfect travel accessory.

In fact, priced at Dh1,839, if the taxi queue is too long, it might even get you home.
