Robotic suitcase COWAROBOT R1, which autonomously follows its owner, launched on crowdfunding platform Indiegogo on Tuesday. The campaign has already completed 93% of its  $100,000 campaign.

“Robotics and artificial intelligence are really hot topic these days, both on the investment side and the business side. However, it’s difficult to bring them into our lives,” founder and CEO of COWAROBOT, Tommie He, told TechNode.

“By using reliable sensing, controlling and AI techniques, we develop robots that can really help to improve our lives.”
