If a scooter and a suitcase had a baby, it would be named Olaf.
The Olaf Business is a carry-on sized suitcase with a scooter attached to it. Designed to be lightweight and agile, the bag weighs nine pounds, carries up to 220lbs, and features an extractable handle, rear brake, and a smart folding mechanism.
If you’re rushing through an airport, all you have to do is flip down the scooter, kick your legs, and glide effortlessly to your gate.
Slovenian designer Bostjan Zagar is a machine engineer who invented the zippy suitcase with his father, a tool maker. They tinkered around with the prototype in their home garage, before taking the invention to a fair where it was well received.

The duo presented the Olaf on Kickstarter with the goal of raising $30,000 for production costs. They’ve recently exceeded that goal by $7,000, and plan to start production soon.
The Olaf Business will cost about $255. They will also produce a bag called the Olaf Urban. This version is aimed at city commuters and looks a bit sporty thanks to a soft wooden longboard similar to a skateboard. The Olaf urban will cost about $224.

We can’t wait to see this bag in action. Seriously, think of how fast you could navigate the airport, especially if you jump on one of those moving walkways!
