A brand new Kickstarter campaign has just launched for a unique travel bag that can charge phones on the go as well as cleaning, sanitising and deodorising any contents that are placed in it.
The innovative new duffel bag, called Paqsule, has the ability to anti-bacterialise objects placed in it with the touch of a button. It uses a chemical-free process that combines ultra-violet light and activated oxygen to sterilise contents and leave them smelling fresh. A partner app for iOS and Android devices allows users to control the bag’s technology and features real time alerts for when the cleaning cycle is complete. The bag houses a rechargeable battery with 72 hours of cleaning life, while a dedicated cell phone battery charging station is also included.
The company says that the bag can be used to freshen up items such as neck pillows or clothing that smells like a campfire following an outdoor weekend, as well as sweaty gym clothes and shoes. Other features include a dedicated laptop compartment, magnetic fasteners, three front organiser pockets, a shoe compartment, a padded strap with a card holder and an internal removable waterproof shower pouch.
The campaign is live now, with the bag retailing at US$279 including shipping. More information on funding it is available on the Kickstarter page.
