  • This suitcase that's attached to a scooter impressed millions last year.

  • The TSA-compliant carry-on allows its rider to get to his or her terminal faster.

  • Viewers debated on whether the invention would make travel easier or cause new problems.

  • Hi I'm Carl.

  • And I'm Chelsea.

  • We're testing out inventions to see if they live up to expectations.

  • We're here to find the answers to the most important questions.

  • It's cool...

  • But does it really work?

  • You're in a crowded airport or crowded train station.

  • All these people around.

  • And you're gonna have to try to bob and weave so it's a lot of starting and stopping.

  • So I don't think it really takes away too much time.

  • But the companies claim is that this suitcase will get you to your destination 50% faster...

  • ...because it has a scooter attached to it.

  • And I think that that claim will be accurate

  • I thought it was nice and compact.

  • It didn't seem as bulky as I would have expected.

  • This is where you put your other things... and stuff.

  • That's where you put your things and stuff.

  • You know, I could pack for three or four days with that thing.

  • Bobby came up with the idea of our scooter luggage.

  • It's because there was a time when the flight restrictions were getting very, very tough.

  • We decided let's make a luggage trolley.

  • Concerning the folding up, it's absolutely simple.

  • You have a leash here, you pull it and...

  • ...it goes together within a second.

  • Come on Chels.

  • Put your foot on it and pull up.

  • Put my foot on here.

  • Okay, I'm going somewhere.

  • We decided to take our scooter suitcases to one of the busiest travel hubs in New York City:

  • Grand Central Station.

  • Like we got looks all day from people.

  • Awesome yo, that's a great idea. You take care alright.

  • Micro.ms, perfect thank you!

  • Please stay tuned.

  • After the break we're taking the scooter suitcases to one of the busiest places in the world.

  • We brought the scooter suitcases to one of the worst places on Earth:

  • Penn Station.

  • About 650,000 people pass through here every day.

  • That's more than JFK Airport, LaGuardia Airport and Newark Airport combined.

  • The plan is to find a long crowded hallway.

  • We'll travel the distance twice: once walking and once with the scooter.

  • We will time ourselves on both trips and find out if the scooter cuts our travel time in half.

  • On your left sir, thank you.

  • It took off a solid 20 seconds.

  • I think you can get from one place to another very quickly

  • So it solves one problem but it raises others.

  • So the suitcase scooter might not get you to your destination in half the time.

  • But every second counts and it will get you there faster.

  • The suitcase scooter is difficult to steer in large crowds.

  • But it is a fun way to travel.

  • Next week on "It's Cool, But Does It Really Work?"

  • Excuse me!

  • Does anyone have a hairy back?

  • We're testing out the back blade.
