The inventors of the Vespa have created Gita – a robot on wheels that will follow you around and carry your stuff. What other products do we need?
In 1946, the Italian car manufacturer Piaggio made travelling by two wheels a cool pursuit by inventing the Vespa. Now its US offshoot, Piaggio Fast Forward, has embraced convenience, and invented a small blue robot on wheels that will follow you around and carry your stuff. Gita (the Italian word for “outing”) can hold 20kg (a case of wine, some hand luggage, a bounty of snacks or a five-year-old). It won’t be available until 2019, however, and only if it’s a staycation, because it’s unclear if this two-foot-high two-wheeler will be allowed on planes. But it’s a start … So what other inventions might make holidaying more bearable?
