Bluesmart Follows Meteoric Success on Indiegogo With Uber Partnership

Bluesmart, the smart luggage startup, announced on Friday a partnership with Uber to provide "exclusive services" to its users. The partnership follows Bluesmart's meteoric success on Indiegogo last year: Its crowdfunding campaign raised more than $2 million in pre-orders from 10,000 backers in more than 100 countries worldwide. Bluesmart, which launched at the end of last year, claims the title of "the world’s first smart, connected luggage." It features GPS-­enabled location tracking, a built-in USB ­battery charger, a Bluetooth­-enabled remote lock and a digital scale.
