NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Officially, it's called the Luxury Technology Show: an event designed to feature "the latest innovations from some of the most prestigious and cutting edge technology brands from around the world."
It's a smaller-scale product showcase than the CES in Las Vegas. There were no $10,000 Apple (AAPL) Watches, no Sony (SNE) 4K flat-screen TVs, nor even any 3D printers to be found on the show floor Thursday evening. But there were a number of expensive items on display, ranging from a Lamborghini (automobile not phone) and a BMW i8 to luxury audio items from Harman (HAR) international and McIntosh.
Here's a look at some of the more interesting offerings:
LugTrack is an intelligent, interactive system designed to keep track of your luggage when you travel.
It consists of a module placed inside your luggage which gathers and stores information about where your bag is located at any given time, as well as when it might have been opened, and sends that information via SMS messages to your smartphone or other device.
The company is working on modules which will also send you photos of anyone who opens your luggage, for any reason. Airline workers, hotel staff, shippers. Use LugTrack to keep tabs on your clothing, computer bags, golf clubs or skis. You get the idea.
For now, the LugTrack system will be available pre-installed in a number of luxury luggage brands. Final pricing will be up to each luggage manufacturer, but LugTrack should add an estimated $50 to $100 to the price of each bag.
