Jun 25.17 Magnesium: Smart Metal for Your Next Getaway
Lightweighting--using light, strong, efficient metals for energy savings and aerodynamics--is the definite trend in the automotive industry, and that trend is carrying over into more consumer products every day.

Consider the newly launched and appropriately named “Carry-On” from Arlo Skye, “luggage for the design obsessed.” An anodized aluminum-magnesium alloy shell replaces the more common polycarbonate exterior to give the carry-on case durability and an almost feather-light weight of 9.5 pounds (empty). The 38L capacity, 22” x 14” x 9” around (maximum approved size for carry-ons for all major U.S. airlines) design is zipperless, with whisper quiet wheels.

For a world of all things wireless and connectible, the Carry-On features a removable, TSA-approved 10,050 mAh battery pack, enough backup power to charge an average smartphone up to six times. Built-in surge and short-circuit protection keeps mobile electronics safe.
Available in Sardine Silver, Champagne, or Penguin Black directly from ArloSkye.com for $550 USD (free shipping and returns in the continental U.S.).

And rolling out more “suitcase” news: meet Samsara, the “world’s first aluminum (combined with magnesium, titanium and zinc) smart suitcase.” The super light, compact and fireproof Samsara has a flat top that doubles as a desk, with power ports to charge devices for on-the-go connectivity.
Equipped with an app that monitors the case’s battery power and lets you set a distance and open alert, should you and your suitcase get separated, or if it’s opened by a stranger.

Capacity: 38 liters (10 gallons) of packing space. Colors: sleek silver or matte black. Retail price $690.
