Limitless Luggage was created in 1987 by Edward Lanahan using wormhole technology. Inspired by the science fiction program Star Trek, Lanahan was prompted to experiment with interstellar technology. Lanahan states, “I know it was a fictitious show created from the imagination of dozens of writers; but to me, Star Trek was the looking glass of the future. It never occurred to me to question it.”
Roughly the size of a carry-on suitcase, whatever you put in the Limitless Luggage enters a wormhole. To empty contents, one must turn the suitcase clockwise three times and activate the release sequence on the keypad. Once the wormhole is activated, the items inside the Limitless Luggage show themselves visually in miniature. A gentle tap on the image pulls that item gradually to the surface, where one can reach in and grab it. The space inside Limitless Luggage has no known endpoint and seems, “Limitless.”
Limitless Luggage is being held by NASA and the US Department of Homeland Security for safety testing. When news of the invention was released to the public last week, NASA scientist Bill Lombargo addressed several questions in his interview, “Limitless Luggage is the most exciting scientific discovery known to space science. The fact that this galactic wonder comes in such humble packaging is an equal surprise….No, it will not be allowed on airlines because there is no way to scan its contents with our current technology...Yes, Homeland Security is concerned that this technology could be used for sinister purposes like kidnapping or concealing weapons. And YES, this technology could mean a solution to excess landfill waste on our planet.”
There are no more details allowed public at this time, according to Homeland Security officer Neil Daniels. Daniels confirms that heads of countries are “giving Limitless Luggage the due attention it deserves to potentially assist with planetary concerns.” NASA hopes to deliver another report early 2017.
