Backpack of the Future

In the future, our electronic devices will be more than just rectangular screens in our pockets. They will be bolder and more integrated into the fabric of our lives – literally. The Androcell backpack is an electronic communication device designed with a “Cradle to Cradle” approach.

With an Androcell backpack, one can exchange, store, create, and view digital data and perform several basic tasks. A steady development of technology ensures a brief lifecycle for electronic products. This is why Androcell is a “Cradle to Cradle” design. The materials used are innovative and organic. At the end of its lifecycle, Androcell leaves behind technical nutrients and biodegradable waste. It is targeted at young adults who have a knack for gadgets and enjoy music with their travels. The design itself displays a bold personality. The “X” shaped brace derives its form from its function, however it gives the design a distinctive appearance.

The backpack features an interactive E-paper display that allows an individual look for every bag. The ribbed brace on the backpack has two major functions: first, it adds strength and durability to the bag; secondly, it emits light for safety at night (for example, when worn by a cyclist). The user can determine the light’s colour. The glowing brace and the E-paper display bring the bag to life. Self-expression is limited only by one’s imagination.

The shoulder straps also make use of the interactive E-paper display. The straps feature a touch interface linked to the items available on the screen. From here, one can browse, modify, and exchange files. One can assign hot keys, a remote, or images and videos to the display on the front of the bag-pack. One can also choose to share and transfer information by plugging a standard USB device into the clip of the waistband. The integrated speaker system allows one to enjoy music while outdoors. The shoulder strap also has a quick-share feature that allows the sharing of small amounts of data like name cards with other Androcell backpacks. When exposed to sunlight, tiny glitter-sized photovoltaic cells harness solar energy to power the device sustainably.

    What for the inner space? How do you open it? A bag, even with a nice design is still a bag and so i want to put things in it…

    This really is a stunning design. I’m interested whether some of these materials exist yet – I’m intregued by the glitter pv and the supporting wiring network and batteries that would be needed to store the power generated. Really, very cool!

    This must have taken a lot of research. Did you not know that Androcell is also the name of an American music producer ? Could be quite confusing.

  • K says:

    well his music did inspire me when i was designing it kind of named after his. to thank him for his wonderful album— efflorescence

    Great design –

    But….

    Where is the zipper to open it?

    How much space is inside?

    Are there pockets? Component holders? Frames?

    How did you design the outside of the bag to look so cool and aerodynamic, and yet the part that goes on the back itself to be so not-ergonomic? I don’t care if it looks cool – if it doesn’t fit the curvature of my spine and offer some structure and makes my back hurt, I’m not going to buy it. And if the belt isn’t even padded – can you say chaffing?

    I love the design part – but I think designers get caught up in the artistic nature and utility, and forget the end user: our bodies are not shaped this way.
