Getting to the airport can be a pain. It usually involves expensive cab fares, asking for favours from friends and family or lugging heavy suitcases onto airport shuttles.

But Chinese farmer He Liangcai has just changed the game by recycling old suitcases into inexpensive small-sized scooters.

The idea took 10 years to become a reality. His suitcase-scooter can carry two people and travel at 20kmh over 60 km on one charge.

It even includes a navigation system, a burglar alarm and a horn to warn pedestrians to get out of the way.

He was inspired to create the suitcase scooter from seeing tired travellers struggling with heavy luggage.

We think it may well be the most ingenious way to get to the airport.
