Excited to welcome the BlueSmart team to the YC W15 batch:

“Imagine a world where you never lose your luggage,” says CEO of BlueSmart, Diego Saez-Gil. He motions to a compact carry-on suitcase sitting beside us and tells me he can track this piece of luggage anywhere.

Saez-Gil’s Y Combinator-backed startup makes these hardshell suitcases. It can locate, lock and weigh your belongings from an app on your smartphone.

It operates on a detachable, Bluetooth-enabled motherboard with a built-in GPS. Weight sensors embedded within the handle let you know if your suitcase meets International travel guidelines. There’s even a built-in 37 Watts lithium-ion battery and a USB plug so you can power your smartphone up to 6 times while on the go.”
