iMessaging With iBackpack Love the idea of owning the iBackpack, a simple communicating tool for cyclists. The backpack features a transparent window through which your tablet (aka iPad) can be seen. It syncs in with your Smartphone via Bluetooth and using a special app, you can let the world know if you are going to be taking a right or a left turn. The Smartphone doubles up as a rearview mirror and relays info like break signal or emoticons and messages to the tablet. Here is how it works: Rear Mirror: Scenes behind users are displayed on their smart phone by using camera on tablet PC in the backpack. Turn Signal: Using swipe and gyro sensor in smart phone on bicycle handle bar. Break Signal: When riding speed rapidly slows down, speed sensor in Smartphone will recognize it and relay it. Message: Users can display messages on their tablet PC by selecting saved messages on smart phone. Designer: Soohun Jung
