    GPS-trackable luggage is great. You can track it as it disappears over the horizon with the thief, only to be found later by the side of the road, empty.

    I would like to see luggage that recognizes me and only me as its rightful owner. If anybody other than me tries to open it, it gets a 150 dB klaxon going and releases a noxious gas.

    Maybe put one in every plane and so planes can be tracked too?

      They already have them. They're called "beacons" or "transponders." That's how they track the flight paths of downed airliners, like the AirAsia flight that recently went missing.

      In spite of the transponders, they still haven't found the AirMalaysia plane.
