Arduibag is a connected backpack for bike riders and is based onBluno M3 (for the bag) and Bluno nano (for the remote control). It is also an open source project created by two passionate french guys: Michaël D’AURIA and Stéphane DE GRAEVE.
The project was inspired by the concept design winner of the Red Dot Design Award 2010: SEIL bag by Leemyungsu design lab.They wanted to make this project come true and to give anyone the opportunity to make his/her own bag and improve on it. That’s why they decided to turn it into an open source project!
If you find the idea interesting but do not have the spirit of a hacker or a handyman, you’d better buy a commercial product:
But if you buy one of these commercial backpacks for bike riders, you will not have the satisfaction of having made your Arduibag yourself. Furthermore, you won’t have the opportunity to participate in the improvement of the Arduibag concept! That would be a shame, wouldn’t it?
