SunTrap Handbag

0%2C%2C2005440259%2C00.jpgDesigner Rosanna Kilfedder's handbag self-illuminates and charges digi-toys. If this SunTrap prototype goes commercial, its presence would signal the wired, urbane omnivoress. Unless the design tips toward a non-mamalian envelope, like one of these. See also: a much earlier post on the "power bag" concept. From the Online Sun, via: Wired NextFest. "The lining lights up automatically when the bag is opened and continues to glow for 15 seconds". "It switches off again to conserve energy when this time is up or after the zip is closed".
Picture after the fold."The Sun Trap bag's battery can also be used to re-charge a mobile phone".
