Meet the Phorce, a smart bag that will charge your gadgets while on the goWe’ve seen bags that not only carry your gadgets around, but at the same time will charge them, but have you ever wondered how far along your gadgets are charged in the bag? And what happens if you forget to take your bag with you after you’ve left class or a café? Well meet Phorce, a bag that will not only tell you about the bag’s battery life, but it will also inform the user when they have left their bag behind, with its creators effectively dubbing the bag a “smart bag”.

The Phorce smart bag will come in two options – a USB version that will charge your mobile devices like your smartphone or tablet, or the Mac version that will charge your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air on the go. The bag itself will pack a 54Whr battery which means that you should be able to add about 4 hours of battery to a 15” MacBook Pro, or 7 hours to a MacBook Air, charge an iPhone about 8 times, a Samsung Galaxy S3 6 times or full charge an iPad once.

Like we said earlier, the Phorce smart bag will come with an accompanying app that will inform the user how much battery the bag has left, and thanks to the app pairing with your bag via Bluetooth, it will also inform the user when they have strayed too far from it. So a bag that not only charges our gadgets but reminds the forgetful when they leave it behind? Sign us up! In any case Phorce is currently a Kickstarter project and they’re hoping to raise $150,000, so if you’d like to learn more about it or donate, head on over to its Kickstarter page for the details.
