Although the prospect of traveling is always exciting, packing everything is a drag. First there’s the worry of forgetting something, then there’s the task of cramming everything you need into the available baggage. Then comes the fateful moment that you arrive at the check-in counter and put the luggage on the scale. And even if you clock in under the acceptable weight limit, you’ve still got to fork over the baggage fee and pray that it arrives at the same place you do. A new art exhibit called Lost Luggage imagines a future where this entire process is digitized, so packing for a trip is as easy as sending an email to a 3D printer at your destination. Follow the link below to learn how it may work.
