A hands-free suitcase that follows its owner around has been unveiled at a major consumer electronics show in Las Vegas.

The much-hyped "robo-suitcase" - officially known as the CX-1, made by ForwardX robotics - is an autonomous suitcase that, thanks to its set of cameras and sensors, is able to auto-follow owners in airports and avoid obstacles. It can be controlled through gestures.

It has been described as the "world's first self-driving carry-on."

The video, which was shot on January 8, shows the smart luggage being demoed at CES 2018.

The show kicked off on January 9 and runs until January 12. More than 170,000 attendees are expected and more than 3,900 companies will showcase their prototypes with focuses, from AI technology to self-driving cars and next-generation TV sets.
