Beijing : Tired of dragging your luggage through busy airports? Take a ride on your suitcase and honk your way through. A Chinese inventor has developed a battery-powered scooter with a suitcase which not only helps in transporting his belongings but also himself. Amateur inventor He Liangcai from Hunan Province has even acquired a patent for this invention. Liangcai demonstrated his suitcase scooter earlier this week, riding all the way to his home a dozen kilometres away, ‘Global Times’ reported. Weighing just seven kilogrammes, Liangcai’s scooter is capable of carrying two people and can travel with a speed of 20 kilometres per hour for 50 to 60 kilometres on a full charge. Liangcai, originally a farmer, said it took him 10 years to develop the scooter that comes equipped with GPS navigation and a burglar alarm.
