Lumzag Smart Backpack – The Smartest Backpack in the world
When I say the smartest backpack in the world trust me when I tell you that is not an understatement. I have reviewed several smart backpacks that are not as good as lumzag’s smart backpack such as oscaurt anti-theft backpack, yorepek’s extra-large backpack, and several others.
They are still very good smart backpacks but not as good as lumzag’s. Lumzag’s pack actually brings the word smart to life and it showcases the true meaning of the word smart in a backpack.
Just so you know, I am not affiliated with this company in any way (at least not yet) but I came across this bag when I started looking into tech backpacks and it blew my mind away. It’s like a backpack from one of those tech movies that has almost everything in it.
As I write this post, I am actually excited because the features of this pack are just amazing. It looked like some geniuses came together and decided to design an outstanding backpack that would trump all other backpacks. One backpack to rule them all.
When you are through reading this post you would be like “wow”, does a backpack like this really exist? I would definitely love to get my hands on this.
Well, get in line because that was what I said before I started writing this post. Have you ever thought to yourself if a backpack can actually be more than just a backpack? What if a backpack could serve you more than just its primary purpose of helping us carry our items?
Won’t that be exciting? Smart backpacks are here to stay and a few years from now, we are going to see even more innovations coming our way in the backpack industry.
The lumzag smart backpack was created by some geniuses with the help of indiegogo’s team and at the time of writing this article, it has not yet been released to the public. There are still trying to polish the bag to make sure it is perfect before been released to the public.
A lot of hard work is been put into the completion of the backpack before it can be released to the public. To those that have already pre-ordered, regular updates are given to them so they know the stage the completion of the backpack. To confirm if the production and testing phases are complete please click the link below.
I have not yet purchased this backpack as at the time of writing this post so I am going to try to describe it’s awesome features as much as I can based on the information I get from the internet.
Indiegogo, Who Exactly Are These Guys
Some of us reading this post might not have heard about Indiegogo. I did not know much about them until recently when I found out more about them. They were a team started way back from 2008 and each of the founders was inspired by their own personal issues of not been able to raise funds for different reasons.
They came together and decided to use the internet to help people that had innovative ideas to help bring their ideas to reality. Most of these ideas need funding before they can become a reality and therefore crowdfunding was initiated.
It is a platform that gives people an opportunity to fund ingenious work in progress product ideas. To read more on this please click here.
Crowdfunding is a way of asking the public to help support the bringing to life of an innovative idea and if the idea is able to be created then they would be among the first to get their hands on it.
This was how the lumzag smart backpack was born. It all started with an idea. It was created but was not available to the public. Bringing that idea to the public required funding and luckily a lot of people were able to comply and I guess they would be among those to get their hands on it when production is complete.
I went through the details of the backpack and I was amazed by what it was made of.
Carbon Fiber With Leather/Nylon Material
If you have not heard about carbon fiber then keep on reading to get a better understanding of it and why you should feel extremely glad this material was used to design this backpack.
Carbon fiber is a strong thin crystalline material that is used to strengthen a material. It normally gets its strength when it is twisted together like a yarn. It is a very strong and lightweight material. You can consider it as a very advanced material in the present generation and it has a kind of high tech look which has made it become popular in industries such as automobile, aerospace, military, and recreational activities.
For its water resisting ability which is very important in every backpack, a silicone coated genuine Italian leather was used on the backpack which gives the backpack a high water-resistant rate making the backpack to be durable and luxury looking. Just so you understand, the backpack is not waterproof but is highly water-resistant.
To further protect your items inside the backpack, a water-repellant AquaGuard zipper was used which was coated to not only make it look luxurious but also increase their durability as well as their reliability.
The materials used in the designing of lumzag’s smart backpack is a fundamental advantage of this backpack. Now we are going to go into the features that makes this backpack to be considered the best smart backpack currently available in the world.
Never Leave An Item Behind
Are you in the habit of always dashing out the door with your backpack thereby forgetting some very important items that should be in your backpack? If I tell you that there is actually a solution to this, what would you say? I bet you would say wow, are you for real.
O yeah, I am for real. The lumzag smart backpack comes with a sensor that is able to track all the items you put into your backpack. This would make you to never forget any item that is meant to be inside your backpack.
All lumzag smart backpacks come with special identification stickers. You would need to attach these stickers to the items you know you put into your backpack that are important. For the process to be complete you would need the lumzag’s app in which you would need to identify the items in the app.
So if you are about to leave all you would need to do is to do a quick check using the app and if any item marked with the identification sticker is not in the backpack then you would be notified in the app. This is very efficient and can make you to never forget any of your items.
Or better still, you can set it to automatic making use of the lumzag’s app and anytime you zip up the bag and about to get on the move, the app would check the bag for any missing item that has the identification sticker attached to it and you would be almost instantly notified.
This is just cool and these are the type of features that made me review this bag on realbackpacks. Just amazing.
An Out Of This World Anti-Theft Feature
Pickpocketing is becoming kind of a career path for some people that we now have professional pickpockets. They are professional because they are more experienced in the act of pickpocketing. With you lumzag anti-theft smart backpack you don’t need to worry about any pickpocket. It does not matter if they are professionals or amateurs.
Your backpack is very much secured because if the zip of your lumzag smart is been opened, you would get a notification in your cellphone. Also, if you are leaving your backpack behind, as soon as you get out of a specific range you would be notified by a high-pitched alarm on your cellphone that you are outside the range of your backpack.
All you need to do to make this feature live is to activate the security mode of the lumzag app on your mobile device. Pretty sweet, right?
You don’t have to worry about your belongings been safe even if you are in a public place.
Light up Your Backpack
When I came across this feature I was like, damn these guys are awesome. Light up your backpack with the built-in Led light of this lumzag’s smart pack that automatically comes on when the backpack is opened in a dark place. As you read this, I am pretty sure you must be fascinated with this feature. It takes the smart backpack to a whole nother level.
This was made possible by a TSA approved lightweight removable smart box that can also be used to charge your laptops, phones, tablets at the same time. It’s like the backpack has a life of its own.
Charge Your Mobile Devices Wirelessly On The Go
Charge your phone while on the go. If you take a closer look, you would notice that there is a small pocket attached to a strap of the backpack. If your phone is QI supported and you place it inside the pocket on the strap, it charges wirelessly.
Please note that your device has to support QI technology before you can make use of this particular feature
Be Online Anytime, Anywhere
Now you don’t have to depend on the network of your phone to be online when you on the go. Another awesome feature of the lumzag smart backpack as it comes with a built-in sim card that was specially designed for this smart backpack. It is a global WiFi hotspot that was designed to work anywhere in the world at a very affordable rate.
Now when you travel to a new location you can be able to contact your loved ones before you settle down and get an actual sim card that is meant for that particular country. But the WiFi hotspot should be used only when necessary and should not always be used.
The WiFi is paid for only when you make use of it and can be done through the lumazag app
Lumzag’s Smart Backpack Gat Your Back
Now you have never seen this before in a backpack. I had no idea something like this could exist in a backpack until I came across lumzag’s smart backpack. How about knowing what is going on both at your front and your back without you actually turning to the back.
Now you might say this feature is not important but let me break it down for you. Say you are on a bicycle on the road and you are wearing your lumzag backpack. You would not have to turn to look at the back because your backpack would have your rear view covered.
You just need to position your phone in a position whereby you can easily look at the phone to know what is going on behind you. Who would have ever thought a backpack would have this type of feature. I am just blown away by its awesomeness.
GPS Tracker To Track Down Your backpack
Keep track of the location of your backpack wherever you are. This is one of my favorites as you can monitor the location of your backpack in real time making you know exactly where your backpack is at.
You might think this might cost you mobile data on your phone but no worries because it would cost you absolutely nothing as a special technology was designed by the team behind this awesome backpack making the GPS tracker be absolutely free because it does not make use of an internet connection.
So if for any reason you forget your backpack somewhere or your backpack probably gets stolen, you would be able to monitor your backpack using the GPS tracker of the lumzag smart backpack from your mobile device.
Change Your Identity
Can a backpack actually define the way people look at you? Can it actually change your identity? I believe it can change the way people classify you. Depending on the type of backpack you carry can define the class you belong to. I always say that having a backpack these days is more than just for carrying our items.
It is now been used as an accessory and the introduction of smart backpacks shows that the backpack is actually more than meets the eye. There is so much more that it can offer if a little creativity is put into its design.
First impression always matter and the backpack you carry can define the way people look at you. Why not take your swag to another level by getting yourself a lumzag smart backpack.
Can it actually get better than this with a backpack? Actually, I hope it does because I believe in the next few years there would be more innovations put into the backpack that would make it smarter than it ever was.
