Well, you don't want to put anything heavy in the top. They should have put the tracks on the long side, or even the flat side. The Luggage beats it though: it can go over mountains and across continents and always knows where its owner is, that Hop case would swoon at sight of a tiny step in its way. And it can't eat people. 8-)

They probably envision it following its owner down the airplane aisle. Slim chance of that working, the way people crowd the aisles. And that's assuming that anything with an engine and wheels built in will be allowed on the plane.

It does have caterpillar tractor treads, so it might be able to go over a dropped ballpoint pen.
