Selftracking suitcases

In 2014, we lost a full passenger jet. Maybe in future, we won't even lose a suitcase anymore. The internet of things, the sensornet, however you call it, will make conncted products possible, and whatever is connected will potentially be located. The thing will also weigh itself, charge your devices and do some other fancy stuff. I love the idea and a few others do so, too: The self-location-tracking and connected suitcase passed 1mn funding on Indigogo (asking for 50k). I wonder how the likes of Samsonite and Rimowa will receive this message.
