If you travel a lot, chances are, you’ve seen the Trunki, those children’s suitcases that double as ride-on toys that kids use to scoot themselves around the airport grounds. They’re awesome. Unless, of course, you’re an older person who wants to ride one, in which case, it’s too probably too small to accommodate your frame. The Jurni is, basically, the Trunki for grownups, bringing the same ride-on capabilities in a larger, adult-sized luggage.
Just like its kid-sized counterpart, the suitcase has a top that can function as a saddle and inline skate wheels that you can use to scoot along the airport grounds. You will, of course, need to kick your feet on the ground to get the ride moving, which, for all intents and purposes, is still a heck of a lot more convenient than walking while dragging a heavy suitcase, whether you’re searching for a charging outlet, grabbing a bite to eat, or queueing in a slow-moving line.
Will the Jurni make you look silly? Probably. I guess a safe rule of thumb will be, if you’re willing to ride one of those wheeled “hoverboards,” this thing shouldn’t make you look any sillier, all without catching the ire of airport security. It’s quite the well-equipped carry-on suitcase, too, with a main storage that’s armed with an adjustable shelf/divider, a strapped storage section behind the main compartment lid, and a removable pod up top for items you want on easy-access. Features include a telescoping handle for dragging the suitcase instead of riding it, a 25-liter total capacity, impact-resistant polypropylene construction, and enough strength to accommodate riders up to 220 pounds. It measures 20 x 14 x 8 inches.
An Indiegogo campaign is currently running for Jurni. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at $99.
