Innovation should be in our mind. It should be in our blood. Innovation, not only helps you to grow but, it also helps you experience something which your mind would have never thought before. Let us consider some examples now. Who imagined Nintendo Wii and Wii sports, released in 2006 would change the way video games were played. Rather than sitting on the couch, you have to get up and get in action which eventually helps you burn calories. The year 2007 saw the launch of Apple’s first Iphone which created wild excitement in the world for smart phones which continues till now. Who could have imagined there will be 588 million users of apple today and Iphone 7 would be the most used phone in the world. These two are recent innovations. Printing press was invented in the year 1440 and the inventor of the printing press, Johannes Gutenberg wanted to revolutionise the manner in which literature was produced and the impact of his invention can be seen all over the world today. Even though, we have e-books, tablets and devices like Kindle now, books are still used and they are here to stay. These inventions were able to create an impact because of innovation. Smart technology is the future now but when you mix smart technology with creativity and entertainment, the end result of the same is something peculiar. It is something astonishing. Steel drake has mixed these three essential elements to create an astonishing product which they refer to as the backpack of the future. They have named it KEEBACK and it is here to revolutionise the way you use backpacks. Check more about this latest tech bag by scrolling down.
WHAT IS KEEBACK?
There are many tech bags in the market right now. Some of them are waterproof, some of them act as power banks for your devices, some of them offer shoulder health care while you carry them and some of them offer extra space as compared to others for your stuff. Keeback, is the latest and one of the most complex backpacks which have been designed till now. It took more than two hundred components to make this kind of backpack. The same is shown in the image below. This was an idea in 2016 and it took three years to design it and it was officially completed in 2019 by Steel Drake. They call it the next generation of backpacks. This is something which is not there in the market. It is a first of its kind and is the first bag which is equipped with a removable and a changeable hardshell ( The white shell on the exterior part, as shown in the image above). It is equipped with a RGB display in the middle as shown in the image above. It has an in built GPS which notifies you, if your bag is away from your mobile phone. This bag is designed for those who are into gadgets and technology and for someone who likes to listen to music on the go and is the life of the party. I”ll tell you why I stated this in the next paragraph. Scroll down if you want to know more about this backpack.
What are the features of KEEBACK?
Firstly, let me talk about the weight of the bag. It is merely two kilograms. If I accurately state it, it is 1.9 kilograms. The most attractive feature in this backpack is the RGB display or Red, Green, Blue display which is in the middle of the bag in the image below. When these colours mix, they create different colours altogether. This is something which is still used in producing colour images on our televisions or laptops. The RGB display screen will showcase whatever you want it to showcase, be it texts, effects, animation, drawings and led lights. All you have to do is connect the bag with the application in your phone via a bluetooth connection and whatever you want to display, can be decided by you by choosing the same on your phone. In total there are 1044 lamps in this screen which produce a mesmerising effect which you’ll be able to witness in the video below. To switch on the Keeback, you have to press a button which is there on the lower side of the bag. Once the power is on, lights will be displayed in the middle as shown in the image below. It states “EYES ON” in the image below but, you can change it to whatever you want through the application. The effects can be displayed on the RGB screen for more than 16 hours. The second thing to talk about is the speaker which is equipped in the bag. Yes, you read that right. A 10 watts speaker is equipped in this bag. All you have to do is connect your phone with the backpack through a bluetooth connection and just play music through your phone. Apart from this special feature, you can listen to music for more than 18 hours, thanks to this backpack. You might be able to understand now why I had mentioned this bag is perfect for someone who is the life of the party. Well, keeback will help you be that but, in a much cooler way. The speaker is said to produce deep bass with high sound quality. No videos are uploaded or made regarding the same but thw way the company has developed this backpack, I can guess it will be of high quality.
The third feature which is something totally different is the removable shell on this bag. The shell is the white plastic cover which has the RGB display lights in between. The shell is said to be really durable and also water and impact resistant. The shells UV coating also makes it scratch proof. The overall exterior of the shell is made of durable plastic by steel Drake. This cover is easily removable which also, you’ll be able to see in the video below. Keeback is available in white, grey, black and transparent colours. No need of changing bags now, just change the shell and you’re good to go. According to me, this is something really interesting and the best part is that, the shells can be changed easily. This bag also has 13,600 mah battery capacity which makes it perfect to charge your mobile devices and tablets on the go and also, this battery powers up the RGB display which is shown in the middle above. Having said this, this bag has 4 usb charging ports. Two of them are located on the outside, in the lower part of this bag and two of them are located in the inside. On the inside is type micro b and type c quick charge ports and on the outside two type a quick charging usb cable ports.
The bag is spacious from the inside as well. You can store your 13 inch laptop, your passport, wallet, phone, journal and all other necessities as well. It boasts an eight litre plus capacity. The futuristic bag of the future has one more feature which makes it more attractive to buy and use. It has an open and latch mechanism which means along with superior technology, you’re also getting safety. It is equipped with anti theft fasteners. It will protect your belongings without you being worried about them.
I think it becomes evident why Keeback is different from the other tech bags already in the market right now. You don’t get many bags with a built in speaker and also an LED display screen which can showcase animations as per your needs and wants. Changeable shells is the aspect which draws more consumer attention towards this.
The designing of this bag started in 2016 and it took three years to complete the entire process. Steel drake, got the first prototype ready by November 2019 and till now the product is not available in the market. The entire funding for this product was done by Indiegogo.
