Charge your gadgets on the go with a new 'smart bag'
| by Nishtha Kanal |
We all love our gadgets. Going through the pain to charge them while you are on the move is an issue we have all faced. Meet Phorce, the world’s first ‘smart bag’ that will protect your precious gadgets and also charge them.
Phorce was listed on to Kickstarter, a website funding platform for creative projects. The platform has helped raise funds for video games such as Project Eternity and Wasteland 2, as also technological designs such as the Pebble E-Paper watch and FORM 1, an affordable, professional 3D printer. The website crowdsources funds in order to help the designer produce it. In return, the supporters or ‘backers’ as they are called, are given tangible awards or experiences such as a dinner with the author as returns for their investment.
The makers of Phorce aim to at raise $150,000 to fully fund its development. As a token gesture, they mention on the site that they will add 10 percent battery capacity within the same weight and size dimensions if the project reaches its $750,000 goal.
