More chances that you won’t lose your bag at the airport with Reusable luggage tags

reuseable e-ink luggage tagsScary to think that you may lose your bag on transit during a long flight, particularly one where you need to connect when doing inter-continents, right? Well you won’t be doing so for long, at-least with British Airways who have plans to start testing re-usable luggage tags that have e-ink displays.

These tags are updated with your current destination, possibly giving you updates of your bag’s location. That way you will know whether to cry at the airport or calm down after knowing your bag is in a random country but you can get it back with some patience and prayers.

Designworks are the guys behind this technology that, if implemented might see flight passengers drop the sticky paper for something more flashy and reusable, with tracking and data storage.
