Attention students everywhere: The backpack has officially been brought into the 21st century. The school day staple has just received a high tech makeover, and it is beyond awesome. Long story short, this backpack can charge your laptop for you — it’s a total game changer. The backpack uses a bendable and flexible battery invented by Australia’s national science agency (CSIRO). This battery allows you basically wear your own energy system. Also, the backpack is made up of fabric woven with conductive fibers. This means that the knapsack’s fabric can connect to electronic devices — no cords needed! Check out a picture of the futuristic backpack below. It’s amazing what one little bag can do!

Can you even imagine carrying this bag to class? We’re totally geeking out about the “energy harvesting buckles” — they collect energy from your movement while wearing the pack. You can charge your devices while running to class! The bag even has USB cables and LED lights. Now we’re starting to wonder what this bag doesn’t have. The backpack also has “wireless charging pockets”, which means you can charge your phone by simply dropping it into your bag. This backpack is clearly the king of all other backpacks. Unfortunately, the bag is still in its testing phase, so it looks like we’ll have to wait to get our hands on it. But we guarantee that the minute this high tech backpack hits shelves, we’ll be the first in line.
