Today’s invention is lockers which actually lock.
Overhead lockers in an airliner, to be precise.
Every time we hear about some flight encountering turbulence, somebody has been hurt by a giant carry-on case hitting them on the head.
Recently, people in a crash have allegedly paused during emergency exit to collect their bags from above their seat.
Instead, I suggest that all lockers be remotely lockable by a flight attendant.
If the seatbelt sign is on, the locks are all engaged.
Knowing this, people would generally concentrate on escape, rather than their (replaceable) stuff.
