Have you noticed how much of our lives became screens? Well, it is true, moreover, that with us is always a smartphone, even now many wear screen on the hand (smart watches), advertising banners on the streets too, began in the form of large displays even in the subway screens were put up to help you get bored go to work or school. But what if we told you that one company managed to embed the screen… just a backpack?
For me, a person who prefers a good book to the Twitter feed, at first it seemed odd, but when the editors brought backpacks PIXEL (no, nothing to do with smartphones Google Pixel they have), the view has changed dramatically. First, interest is the technology itself: how the developers managed to place on the back of a backpack display, and even to protect it from shock and moisture? Given that this is the first backpack of its kind, it is really interesting to see.
The display is a large LED-panel of the plurality of LEDs, which together can reproduce up to 16.5 million colors. Therefore, it can display any image, animation or just text. It does not have its own battery power: for this, the creators have provided a cable to connect an external battery (that everyone has now, not one). To carry on the back the built-in battery — pleasure so-so.
Despite the fact that the display appears to be part of a backpack, actually it is removable — so you can remove it, for example, before you wash it. For rain and snow have no fear: PIXEL backpack made of water repellent fabric and has a thick inner lining to protect the contents from bumps. By the way, the screen has no boundaries, whereby it is impossible to notice in the off state. If in the evening you suddenly decide to go in a rough neighborhood.
Even the zipper is completely concealed for protection against water, dirt, and also to prevent break-ins and theft.
This backpack is only one?
Actually PIXEL is a line of backpacks with an integrated display — PIXEL MAX PIXEL PLUS and PIXEL ONE. First we were able to test in the wording, but the rest are good. PIXEL PLUS is a pretty compact backpack that can be easily used for daily wear. It fits laptop with screens up to 13 inches but also other small things. Three internal compartments allow you to place and charge, and the document folder, and lunch box — on this backpack every day. Despite the volume of 16 litres, it is incredibly light — weighs only 780 grams without a load.
Shoulder straps are adjustable (80 cm), but the main feature is, of course, the screen, which can be controlled with a mobile app for iOS or Android — LED Space.
Here you can type the text and send it to the backpack display, choose from ready-made theme, upload your own image or you can create a unique combination of several blocks of text.
PIXEL MAX — new-2019. In appearance it is similar to PIXEL PLUS, but has some differences. So, the total capacity of the backpack was increased to 20 liters. And inside added a special padded compartment for notebook and tablet — and in addition lots of pockets and compartments for small items and documents.
The main distinguishing feature of the model MAX – hidden pocket on the back of the backpack that will protect from prying your money, documents and valuables.
Right away I remembered the backpack Bobby Pro from XD Design. Its outer part is hiding a few layers of special material that can resist cuts — this ensures that nobody can open your bag unnoticed and steal valuables. The external pocket has three and two of them are located on the back. One with RFID protection so no one could read the key of your car or write off the money from a credit card. There you can put valuable documents — passport, wallet, plane tickets and other things, the preservation of which is particularly relevant.
Or take the same models from Pacsafe (X Pacsafe Pacsafe X and Slim). This business backpacks that max is protected from theft. Inside is a compartment for a laptop (with a diagonal of up to 15 inches), tablet, external battery pack (with cable), a pocket that blocks RFID waves, 6 pockets and 1 zippered pocket.
Pacsafe X 27 litres, Pacsafe, X Slim — a little smaller by 20 liters.
Returning to PIXEL MAX screen size is the same as the model PLUS — 25×25 cm, displays 16.5 million colors and is easily removable.
This backpack looks very cool, no wonder it is this year nominated in international competitions as the most stylish backpack. It has the shape of a slightly elongated parallelepiped with a relatively sharp edges. But the main thing — it is waterproof, has a vented layers and well-organized interior space.
For ease of wearing backpacks PIXEL pleasantly surprised. The straps and back are moderately soft and hard, can be well loaded backpack and not feel any discomfort. Webbing is almost no pressure in the back and not crash. Collected also on the conscience, no wonder the quality control Department checks every PIXEL backpack, and all backpacks manufacturer warranty.
Now, when everyone is walking around with a gloomy black backpacks, such models with built in screens look especially advantageous, because you can just stand out among the crowd and Express their stance.
