A new smart everyday backpack has been created by Wolfgang Langeder and team based in Austria which takes the form of the Skarabeos backpack and antitheft bags which come with their own companion application to provide additional features and added security. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the new smart backpack which was launched by Indiegogo this week with the aim of raising €30,000 over the next 25 days.
If a thief tries to grab your backpack you will be instantly notified on your smartphone enabling you to take action. Also if you inadvertently forget your everyday backpack as you walk away your smartphone will also remind you to pick it up. “Skarabeos designs innovative anti-theft bags and accessories. Our bags offer you the highest level of protection to keep your personal belongings and tech safe. Feel safe, enjoy peace of mind with Skarabeos!”
The companion application is also capable of immediately alerting you when someone tries to open your bag and the enhanced distance alerts ensure that you will never again forget your bag, and that it won’t be stolen says Wolfgang. “The electronic protection system consists of the Skarabeos Box with smart sensors and energy-efficient Bluetooth interface, synched to the free Skarabeos app. This system works with any of our bags.”
