Pretty much everything is becoming smart nowadays, apart from bags. That changes today with Andrew Lentz’s Kickstarter project for a new smart bag accessory called Serenity, which can be fitted to any bag to make it smart.
Capable of connecting to your smartphone, the bag is able to provide you with notifications when your bag has been opened, left behind and even details about its last known position.
It has been designed to automatically grant owner recognition, and can deter others from opening or moving your bag when you leave it unattended.
The Kickstarter project explains more:
We’ve all had the choice: Do I lock my things up or, am I willing to be chained to them with a nervous paranoia? Our bags exist to bring along the stuff we want to use, yet keeping a constant eye on them is stressful. And let’s be honest, we humans make poor watchdogs. With Serenity, your bag will enjoy better than human protection, and you, can focus on the better things in life. Oh, and you won’t be forgetting your bag anymore either.
Instead of trying to find your bag AFTER it is lost, Serenity enables your bag to automatically recognize its owners, and deters others from moving or opening it. Serenity also notifies your smartphone or wearable if you are about to leave your bag behind. But having to turn something on and off all the time would also be inconvenient, so we made it automatic.
