This Is The Purse You’ve Been Looking For

r2d2-purse

Yes, the endless stream of cliche headlines continues. I mean, what else would you have put there? Because hey, you are looking at a purse that’s fashioned after everyone’s favourite droid, R2-D2. And not only does it look amazing and loudly proclaim your love for all this Star Wars, this purse has got some features too!

– Star Wars R2-D2 Blue/White/Silver Patent Dome Bag
– Officially-licensed Star Wars merchandise
– Double-zipper closure
– 2 interior pouches (1 with a zipper closure)
– Metal feet on bottom to prevent wear and tear
– Materials: Simulated leather
– Care Instructions: Spot clean with a damp cloth and mild detergent
– Imported
– Exterior Dimensions: 9 1/2″ wide x 8″ tall x 5″ deep
– Interior Dimensions: 9″ wide x 7 1/2″ tall x 1-4 1/2″ deep (gets smaller toward the top of the bag)
– It won’t fit your laptop, but it might fit your netbook, tablet, or eReader

And the best part about ThinkGeek merchandise is that it’s rarely overpriced. This applies to this bag too, as you’re being asked $60, which seems more than reasonable to us.

Classy: Bev-Bag Is A Booze-Carrying Purse

bev-bag

The only thing that’s classier than pouring wine out of a cardboard box is pouring it out of a purse. And that’s exactly what you’ll get to do if you buy the Bev-Bag Secret Handbag Flask. It’s a normal-looking purse that just happens to house a 28 oz. flask with a hidden spigot on the outside. If you’re at a park, say, and the fancy strikes you, you can easily access your libations just by opening the spigot, tilting the bag and pouring. And when you’re not drinking, the bag itself does have space to carry all the normal… things girls carry in their bags.

It comes in four colours and costs all of $36.

Shopaholics: Smart Handbag Seals Itself To Prevent Overspending

ibag-smart-purse-prevents-spending

You’re out at the mall, and suddenly you spot it: 50% off on everything! Oh, sure, you don’t really need yet another set of beed sheets, but it would be stupid not to get them now, right? At 50% off, it’s almost as if you’re being paid to buy them! Yeah well… if that’s the kind of logic that has put your finances in the gutter, maybe you’ll find a bit of help in technology. The iBag is a purse that contains an Arduino board, a GPS chip, and a locking mechanism which confers it a host of potentially money-saving abilities.

As soon as you enter your shopping ‘danger zone’ the bag lights up with a LED light warning signal that’s triggered by a GPS chip. If you decide to ignore this and make a purchase, the bag will track your wallet being taken out and send an SMS to your nominated ‘responsible other’ to let them know you’ve had a spending relapse.

You may think that although these features are great, they’re only a deterrent and won’t actually stop you from making a purchase, so there’s also a real-time clock which locks the bag during vulnerable spending times during the day.

Listen, we realize this sounds demeaning to women. The idea of having a “responsible person” that can come and save the day, coupled with the fact that the iBag is a purse and not a man’s wallet can seem a bit sexist. The company addresses this by informing us that a man’s version can also be made, but their research “has shown them” that women exhibit this type of behaviour more often than men. We haven’t seen the research, so we’re not going to comment either way. Their intentions are in the right place, if maybe their messaging is a bit off. It’s not even a commercially available product yet, though it will be for $200 if enough people express their interest in it. You have to leave your email address on their site to do so.
