Recyclable Solar Powered Backpack - Cradle to Cradle Backpack with Solar Power

Karan Singh Gandhi, a Mumbai designer has devised a backpack that has multimedia capabilities, and is completely sustainable. With the Androcell Backpack, Gandhi aims to explore the role of technology in green design. Not only does the backpack store your belongings, but it also boasts a solar-powered e-paper display for browsing and sharing files, and is made of recyclable biopolymer. The shoulder straps house the touchscreen buttons that permit users to access music, videos, and images, while minuscule photovoltaic cells within the backpack’s material exploit the sun’s energy; allowing the backpack to run itself. Gandhi’s goal was “to create a quality aesthetic that showed sustainable materials and processes in a luxurious and attractive light.” By allowing each backpack owner to choose the appearance of the interactive display and the color of the light-emitting X-shaped brace, Gandhi seems to have found a way to mesh aesthetic with technological sustainability.
