Eagle Creek’s NFC-Connected Bags Reveal Places a Traveler Has Been
Appealing to Millennials who are equally as passionate about traveling the world as they are sharing their experiences with others, Eagle Creek embedded NFC chips in its Caldera luggage line, effectively creating connected bags that help consumers share their unique stories. The NFC-connected luggage designs can be tapped with a smartphone to initiate a cloud-based web experience, complete with a personalized dashboard that shows all the destinations a traveler has previously visited. In the spirit of friendly competition and gamification, the NFC feature also shows a leaderboard that shows the travelers with the highest amount of mileage.
The NFC-enabled luggage designs also include other smart features, such as a lost and found functionality, as well as easy access for videos and additional product information.
