It takes one hour to charge the Modobag fully and it has the ability to travel six miles before coming to a halt (about the distance between London King's Cross and Brixton).

The carry-on is currently available for pre-order via the crowdfunding site Indie Go Go, for £1,153 ($1,495), with shipments starting in January 2017.

Along with having a motor, the Modobag has USB ports and a battery pack so you can charge devices on the go.  

The speedy wheely was invented by Chicago-based entrepreneur Kevin O’Donnell.

The idea apparently struck him when he was pulling his children on suitcases at the airport, and wondered, 'Why can’t we ride our luggage and get to where we’re going faster with less stress?'

Working with a motorcyclist friend, O’Donnell brought his ideas to life. 

Commenting on his invention, the avid traveller said: 'Modobag is one of the most innovative and exciting advancements to hit the travel industry since rolling suitcases were introduced in the 1970's. 

'I have test driven the Modobag at heavily-trafficked airports, including O'Hare, JFK and LaGuardia.

While many have given the case a thumbs up branding it 'practical yet fun', others have panned it. 

'Welcome to a new level of laziness,' one person said after watching the Modobag in action, while another viewer mused: 'Unless you travel at 2am what airport has that much free room?' 

This month the Modobag got A-list approval from Big Bang Theory star, Kaley Cuoco and Jimmy Kimmel, who were both spotted riding the cases down the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
