Shay Mitchell just designed a suitcase that’ll tell you if your luggage is overweight

COURTESY OF BÉIS

Listen: Shay Mitchell knows travel. The jet-setting actress, known for her starring role in Pretty Little Liars (or more recently, Netflix’s mega-hit series You), is no stranger to globe-trotting, and she has the hashtag and YouTube travel series to prove it (it’s #SHAYCATION, if you’re wondering).

Sex robots are on the horizon. And this might be a problem. Imagine this: A totally realistic robot of your own design that is capable of fully carrying out any sex act that you can dream up. It looks, smells, and sounds incredibly realistic. And your state-sponsored insurance paid for her in full. In effect, she was free—prescribed by your physician to help with your status as officially “sexually dysfunctional.” Recent federal legislation, supported overwhelmingly by a male majority in the House and Senate, has made this kind of medical prescription perfectly legal.
