A ‘smart bag’ that tells you when you’ve forgotten something. It’s one of several ‘smart fabric’ applications that have been explored in the bYOB (build your own bag) project at the Media Lab. This kind of thing has been discussed for many years now. I hope they stop talking about them and start marketing them soon – I’m always worrying I’ve left stuff behind when I’m packing.

  1. What happens if you lose/leave behind the bag?
    With my luck that’s what would happen.

    Hi, David.

    Just cause the technology is smart doesn’t make the user any smarter, right?
