Cowarobot, Dude!

Sporting more equipment than a luxury sedan, the Cowarobot R1 is an autonomous robotic suitacase capable of driving itself to you, and with you. Seriously, take it on a stroll and it will follow you around like a trained monkey. Besides, it's significantly cheaper than owning a monkey and wont fling any faecal matter.

The Cowarobot makes me feel happy because I like the idea of something never leaving my side and being programmed to never want to leave my side. True love. The suitcase relies on something called a "CO-MOVE System." I’m very unclear on what this system is. It apparently involves sonars, "a depth sensor CO-EYE" (no idea what that is, either), and cliff detect sensors so it doesn’t bump into things or fall down stairs. Again, it’s unclear whether any of this works.
