With additional charges made by airline companies for excess baggage, the luggage checker is extremely useful before air travel. Makino Trading asked Studio17 to expand its already successful luggage checker range with a dual function baggage scale and alarm clock.

The compact design retains the portability of existing models whilst packaging the additional functionality of an alarm clock. In use, the product is connected to a strap and then hooked onto the users luggage, which when lifted give an accurate weight measurement of the contents.

A bright backlit screen gives a clear visual indication to the weight or time when in use. In addition a small speaker bleeps to indicate when the weight is set. This speaker is also used for the alarm feature of the product.

The front face of the product is subtly curved, folding at the ends to create a strong feature line that removes the visual weight of the product.

The underside of the product is defined by its requirement to be comfortable in the hand, whilst allowing the product the rest at an angle when used as a clock.

Internally, the components are efficiently arranged  to ensure the product is easy to transport, but strong enough to weigh bags up to 50kg.

Launched in 2013 and sold in Japan
