‘The Phorce’ is a multi-functional smart bag that can power all your devices, communicate with your smartphone via Bluetooth, and transform from a messenger bag, into a backpack or briefcase. Phorce can charge up to 3 usb-devices simultaneously, from iPads to Android phones. On top of charging all phones and music players, the lightweight battery pack can also power a MacBook for up to 7 extra hours.

Phorce also connects and communicates with smartphones via Bluetooth. The Phorce app, for both iOS & Android, shows users exactly how much power the bag has left and what they can do with it. Intuitive graphics display the exact number of times users can still charge their devices. Users can also ask Phorce to send notifications, such as a reminder to charge Phorce when its battery’s running low. Finally, users will receive a notification on their mobile devices as soon as Phorce is outside of range, helping users avoid leaving their important belongings behind.

Phorce can adjust itself to any need, thanks to its unique construction and strap system. It can transform from a messenger bag, to a backpack, or briefcase in a matter of seconds and a clever cable management system keeps gadgets organized. Weighing in at just 3.7 lbs and constructed out of a durable, water-resistant, custom-coated fabric, the Phorce also features waterproof zippers to keep users’ gear dry and impact-resistant padding to protect devices against shocks and bumps. It is now available for pre-order via its website and through Kickstarter. Watch a video of this multi-purpose bag below.
