New Fast Food Bag Tech: Genius? Or Overkill?

fast-food-bag-tech

There’s something to be said about the above concept, we’re just not sure what. In case the animation doesn’t play or you’re unable to see it, you’re looking at a piece of cardboard with strategically cut holes that allow you to carry a burger, fries and a drink in one hand. Now, some of you are going to ask “what’s wrong with a regular bag?” Or, “how would this work if you try to put it down on a car seat?” We hear you, but hey, any way you slice it, the fact remains that with this method, you retain the use of one hand. Is it better than what we have now? We suppose it depends on your needs, but having more options is generally a good thing and we’d be delighted to see this being used alongside regular bags. Unfortunately, we don’t have any more info than what you see so we can’t tell you if there are any plans to ever put this into circulation. Heck, maybe it already is?

Folding Backpack Scooter

Foldable Backpack Scooter

We talked about a carry on luggage with a fold-out scooter last February, and you guys thought it was pretty neat. But that one was almost $400, while the Glyde Gear FLY is about one fifth that much, and seems to do much the same thing. It’s got a 1550 cu in / 25.4L capacity, and is made from 600 Denier Polyester, whatever that means. The fold out scooter can carry a man weighing up to 200lbs, and the entire thing should fairly easily serve as a carry on in any plane. Granted, it’s not made by Samsonite and doesn’t look as slick as the $400 option, but $90 to have the ability to scoot around an airport, between gates? That’s well worth it, in our opinion.

The Anti-Theft Lunch Bags

Heard a pretty funny joke the other day.

“There’s this weird new trend at the office. People are naming their lunches. Today I had a sandwich named Kevin.”

It’s funny because it’s true; you leave your food in the fridge at your own risk. Bag your sandwiches in these anti-theft bags that make it look like your stuff is mouldy, and there’s a bigger chance the thieves will just skip over it.

It’s $8 for 25, but they’re currently sold-out.

Cloak Bag Lets You Use You Camera Faster

By David Ponce

Carrying a nice dSLR around in a protective bag is cool but it makes taking impromptu pictures a lot harder. Often, by the time you take the camera out, the moment is gone. The Cloak bag aims to fix that issue by featuring a removable bottom that leaves the lens exposed while keeping most of the rest of the camera protected. And more importantly, cloaked. See, exposing an expensive camera in some environments is often an invitation to be forcibly separated from it. Being able to keep it hidden in its bag while taking shots is an invaluable ability. What’s more, you still can have access to all of the camera’s controls thanks to the Cloak’s versatile construction. It will conform to lenses of different lengths as well as allowing you to manually control them if you unzip part of the bottom panel.

All this fun comes at a not unreasonable price of $69.
