Ride on a suitcase - level 2
A Chinese man came up with an interesting invention. He created a motorised suitcase which can go up to 20 kilometres per hour (12 miles per hour) and has a battery life of 6 hours. It can be simply plugged into the wall to charge. It even has a GPS system.
The inventor thinks that this suitcase will be a hit. He says that it will be sold at a low price, won’t cause any pollution and it will be easy to carry.
The inventor said that he got the idea for the suitcase when he watched tired travellers with their heavy luggage.
Difficult words: invention (original idea for a new machine), plug (connect), pollution (things that make the air or water dangerously dirty).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
