Google collaborated with Samsonite to make a smart backpack, called the Konnect-I, that controls your phone. Konnect-I controls various functions on your phone that you would normally touch the screen or use your voice to interact with. This backpack implements the use of Google’s Jacquard technology, which adds touch sensitivity to fabrics. The heart of Jacquard is the Jacquard Tag, a tiny computer that makes everyday things more helpful. If you want to control music, you need to brush up and down the strap. You double tap on the strap to take a selfie, or open Google Assistant to hear the latest news. An LED on the strap is also set to light up according to the alerts set by the user. The backpack comes in handy for hikers. They can configure it to receive turn-by-turn directions while on the go, without needing to look at their phone’s navigation. The Konnect-I backpack comes in two styles: Slim ($199) and Standard ($219).
