New Samsonite backpack uses Google tech to connect with your phone

Looking for a way to interact with your phone without actually looking at it? Samsonite might have a solution — at least for certain scenarios. 

The company’s new Konnect-i backpack uses Google’s Jacquard tech to connect to your smartphone. The Jacquard is a smart module inserted into one of the backpack’s straps, and the backpack also has a touch-sensitive part on the same strap. The backpack supports several gestures, such as swiping up or down and double tapping, which you can assign to perform various tasks on your phone. 

The Konnect-i comes in two sizes: Slim and Standard. (Pictured: Slim.)
