Talking Luggage Locator lets you know where your bags are
by Mark R
Of course, no one likes to be at the airport after an 8 hour flight and wait for their luggage to come down the carousel. Imagine if you had a remote that you could just hit, and it would say something like “Hey! I’m over here!”
Surely this was the mission of the Talking Luggage Locator, because that is exactly what it is. It works by attaching a baggage tag with 6 flashing LEDs. In all honesty, the flashing LEDs would be enough to get my attention, and I would probably find it right away.
It helps to have a remote that works from 45 feet away so my own voice can say something else like: “Yo! You gonna grab me?” You can just imagine the cacophony in the baggage claim if every passenger had one of these.
Believe it or not, it is only $14.98 from the aptly named Things You Never Knew website. Yes, that is a very low price, which makes me wonder how durable this thing is. No one wants to find their bag that way, but it is better than the airline losing your luggage.
By the way, the tag itself uses three AAA batteries that are not included. The remote itself comes with the button batteries, though.
