Like to stand out from the crowd? Well, there is a smart animative backpack that will allow you to control its appearance directly from your smartphone. The electronic accessory is the work of Pix Inc, a startup made up of a group of innovators who focus on creating products that help consumers express their personality and customise their appearance on the go.
Pix Inc, All About Customisation and Personalisation
Recently launched on Kickstarter, the durable backpack has been designed to survive everyday life, whether that be commuting daily to work or going on adventures. Both water resistant and shock resistant, the functional bag has a fully-coloured screen built into the shell. The screen allows the user to access and display a library full of pictures, animations, widgets and games, including weather, social media notifications, cyclist turning signals, time and date, Tetris games and more.
“With society’s focus on self-expression, technology and high-performance, we jumped on the idea of combining these factors.”
“Everyone uses a backpack, and everyone has their unique style,” said Sergii Iezdin, Co-founder of PIX. “With society’s focus on self-expression, technology and high-performance, we jumped on the idea of combining these factors. We’re excited to help people unleash their creativity in the backpack industry because nothing else is as customizable as PIX.”
Users can easily and quickly control PIX’s appearance using the mobile app via Bluetooth connection. The biggest perk is that wearers can create their own designs, which is an excellent bonus for the more creative users. PIX is compatible with any 2A output & USB Type-A power bank. A 20,000mAh power bank, which will power PIX for about 12 hours, is also available for purchase.
Available in four different colours: grey, yellow, purple or blue, the backpack has several separate compartments for ample storage space for things like a laptop, tablet and other belongings. If you would like to grab one you can do so through their Kickstarter campaign. Prices start from $199.00. For that amount, you will receive one PIX backpack for almost 25% off the future retail price. With 40 days to go and 178 backers already committed, Pix Inc has raised €30,103 of their $35.000 goal.
