Backpacks are designed to hold our stuff, but with more electronics and gadgets finding their way into our lives these days, backpack makers have started to look towards creating products that can do more. For example we’re seeing backpack makers create backpacks designed to hold our gadgets, with some even creating slots for power banks.


However if you’re looking for a backpack that can hold your stuff and more, Visvo’s Novel backpacks could be worth checking out. Launched on Kickstarter, the Novel backpacks are possibly some of the most hi-tech backpacks that we’ve seen to date. They come with a built-in power bank that lets users charge their phones on the go, with support for wired or even wireless charging (Qi-compatible).

The backpacks also come with a host of cables that can be pulled out from various areas of the back, like the straps, side pockets, and more. There are also magnets built into the straps of the bag so you can clip your earphones when not in use. The designers have also integrated LED lights onto the outer surface of the backpack, making it ideal for cyclists at night, and also inside the bag itself to help users search for things.

There will also be an optional GPS tracker if you’re into that sort of thing. There are three Novel backpacks being offered at the moment, with each model sporting a different style and size depending on your needs. If you’d like to learn more or pledge your support, head on over to Kickstarter for the details.
