RoboPorter Carries Your Luggage for You

We are all familiar with the congestion and infinite amount of things that are going simultaneously at the airport. On really busy days, we carry our heavy bags, search for the gate, take off our shoes, remove the laptop from our bag, put the laptop back in our bag, put our shoes back on, and continue to lug our baggage with us. Wouldn’t it be pretty cool if we at least could get rid of the burden of having to carry our luggage or suitcases?

We could always wait for Tony, the robotic luggage to come around and help us or use the RoboPorters in Japan.

Newly added for passengers arriving at Kita Kyushu airport are RoboPorters to assist with your bags. I do not mean an actual, sometimes smiling, human being, but an emotionless robot that will help you lug your bags to their destination. This could be done in two ways: either tell it where the bags need to go, or use its onscreen map to mark the destination.

At first thought I saw this as the lazy man’s amenity, but at second thought…why not? Our luggage are sometimes so heavy, and hundreds of things are going through our mind, including phone calls, time tables, co-travelers, and more. We kind of deserve to be able to focus on the things that we have to do ourselves.
