Balanzza Ergo Digital Luggage Scale
Realizing that your luggage is overweight after arriving at the check-in counter can be both stressful and costly. But with Balanzza’s Ergo digital luggage scale, travelers can start their journey knowing exactly how much their suitcases weigh. The Ergo’s sleek, ergonomic shape makes it easy to grip. Users lift the scale and luggage together with one hand and see the weight on the screen, which is located on the upper side of the scale. The device includes two AAA batteries, and is available in black and green. At just 6.5 inches by 2.5 inches, and weighing half-a-pound, the Balanzza Ergo is easily portable and can easily be brought along on your travels.

It’s not hard to spot Tumi’s new limited edition suitcases among the usual mass of black and brown bags on airport carousels.

Tumi is only selling 1,000 units of each wheeled case, available in two carry-on and two standard suitcase sizes. If you have a fetish for aesthetic co-ordination, look out for the matching iPhone4 case, too.
