Bluesmart shuts down after airlines ban smart luggage

Smart luggage company Bluesmart is shutting down and selling off its technology, and it has placed blame on the major airlines that adopted a de facto ban of its battery-toting bags.

The recent ban on smart luggage with non-removable batteries, which was meant to reduce the risk of battery fires, put Bluesmart “in an irreversibly difficult financial and business situation,” the company wrote in a blog post today.

The only workaround the company came up with to skirt the ban was a step-by-step set of instructions on how to unscrew and detach the entire electronic module (including the integrated battery) from its suitcases.

Bluesmart — which said it had around 65,000 suitcases in use around the world at the time of the ban — also says it will no longer handle returns or replacements.
