It's no secret that airplanes are more uncomfortable than ever, and with no sign that improvements are on the way, we're just hoping that teleportation is not too far off. Until then, at least there are a handful of clever new inventions that promise to make air travel just a little bit better.

From a trackable suitcase to nifty headphones designed to help you sleep, we found five inventions on Kickstarter that we need this summer. Sure, we might attract some side-eye from other passengers when they see we've brought our own combination tablet-and-cup holder, but hey, at least we'll be comfy on the flight.
