The Ultraviolet Sports Pack by industrial designer Rahim Bhimani aims to solve a big problem faced by pro athletes-the odor of their shoes after a strenuous game.

The zipping of the bag, when the metal zipper reaches a contact point, triggers the ultraviolet light which is indicated by a small LED.
