New York - Using colored ribbons to identify luggage coming off the conveyor belt at the airport may no longer be necessary – thanks to a new development by Israeli startup Easy-2-Pick. The company has developed a special “remote control” device that identifies your bag with a special signal. When your bag is within 15 meters of the remote control, a beep is heard and lights go off.
The chip and a remote sensor attached to the bag are paired, so even if everyone else is using the Easy-2-Pick system, you’ll be alerted only to the presence of your bags. The company has signed a deal with American Express Travel Services, which will offer it as an option to its customers.
