Based on our own experience, we decided to incorporate this high-technology into the backpack and to provide everyone with the ability to recharge their smartphones when needed, to have 24/7 shareable Internet connection and many more.
Excitement and joy fill the air of our company as we are approaching the period when we will release our high-technology backpack - the iBackPack. So far, our development path has been great - we started as a company dealing with designing and developing websites, but we grew to be a company that has combined a common product with high-technology and created a high-technology product - an iBackPack.
Initially, our idea was to create an iBackPack with a GPS technology incorporated in it, designed only for children who are still too young to carry a smartphone, so that their parents will know where they are, what they do and so on. But, the idea expanded even more once we realized that in fact everyone was wearing a backpack, even professionals. We began thinking about the advanced technological world, and how most of the people cannot imagine their lives without a mobile phone, Internet, and many of them have experienced the low battery syndrome at a time they most needed their phone. Based on our own experience, we decided to incorporate this high-technology into the backpack and to provide everyone with the ability to recharge their smartphones when needed, to have 24/7 shareable Internet connection and many more.
The idea to use the backpack developed naturally. In fact, it came as an answer to the following questions: “Is there anything in the world that hasn’t been improved? How can we further help people? What other product can be improved and enhanced through the aggregation of technology?”
Since the backpack is a very low-tech and almost everyone owns at least one backpack which is widely used on a daily basis - it could quite easily be turned into a technology hub. Additionally, the backpack is spacious, it has shoulder straps, in some cases wheels, and it is extremely easy to carry around. Furthermore, in today’s ever-changing environment, business professionals are also carrying backpacks, but it’s most practical and comfortable. It’s even more ideal now than having briefcases, which nowadays are no longer adequate. Every professional needs a spacious mobile storage asset where the multitude of electronic components, such as a notebook computer, iPad or Android tablet, iPhone, Android Phone, charging devices etc would be kept. Thus, an increasing number of men and women are looking for a better way to carry their tools. And this is how we chose to transform the backpack into a technology hub.
Currently we are still in the developing phase, and we are working together with all the people around the world on determining which features would be the best to have them incorporated in the backpack. Everyone can participate and vote for the features that he/she wants to see and/or have incorporated in the iBackPack. We have a list of about 15 features but in regards to space and time, we will only describe five of them.
It is really hard to imagine a day without internet, and as the technology advances a Wi-Fi connection is always needed. Guided by our own experience, we thought that it is of no use driving to some place which have a sluggish Wi-Fi connection, for example to Starbucks, to share some important email when you can have internet with you all the time and even allow up to 6 of your friends to connect to it. Since the backpack is ideal to serve as a communication hub, the iBackPack comes with its own WIFI hotspot - providing high-speed internet access through multiple carriers including AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Time Warner Cable and Direct TV.
Spending too much time on your smartphone devices will certainly empty their batteries and if you are in the middle of a deserted place where will you charge your batteries? To avoid the syndrome of low battery, we have decided to incorporate an extremely powerful battery - Tesla-style battery - with a capability to recharge both iPhone and iPad at the same time, and not just these two but even the gadgets of up to three friends.
We have also incorporated a GPS Tracking System and a Bluetooth Proximity Locator in the iBackPack, which is connected to your smartphone device via the mobile apps. Parents of children are empowered with the ability to monitor the whereabouts of their children. Even more they can create “safe” and “no-go” zones for their children, and get notified if they enter such zone. The most concerned parents will get detailed reports as to where their child is at the moment, or where he or she is going. The iBackPack app has Google Street and Augmented Reality functions, which makes the tracking even more precise and detailed.
Besides being informed about the whereabouts of your children, the Bluetooth Proximity Locator allows you to always know where your backpack is. If you don’t know where your iBackPack is, just activate the Bluetooth Proximity Locator from the mobile app and it will track and immediately inform you where your iBackPack is. If you accidentally leave it at the bus station or in the market, the app will inform you about the same. Get reminded about your iBackPack every time you are leaving certain place, when you are stepping off the train or when you are waiting for your backpack at the airport.
The iBackPack mobile app is available for all Android devices, as well as for the Apple iPhone, iPad and the new sophisticated Apple Watch.
Besides these features, other features which are on the list for people to vote for are multiple USB ports, a superior stereo system, a wireless recharging pad, solar panel charging, retractable usb cord and much more. To say it in simple words, we’ve decided to create a communications hub, which will be useful for everyone from age eight to eighty.
We are almost at the end of accomplishing this goal and if you want to learn more about us and the features we offer, as well as vote for those that you want to have in your backpack and even win a free backpack check our website at www.ibackpack.co.
