For those who have the experience of reopening and repacking your luggage due to overweight at the check-in counter at the airport, your savior is here. 

A team of engineering students from Singapore Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has invented the PLS which they call it personal luggage scale. This device has a built in electronic scale that travelers can use to weigh their luggage easily.

The PLS is integrated into the luggage thus it is very convenient and you can weigh your luggage as and when you like. 

"In the future, we can foresee modern luggage having a small display helping to measure the weight of the luggage on the handles," said Vernon Chow, 23, one of the student inventors of the PLS.

Though its just the students' project, they are considering to pause their studies and commercialize the product.
