The iBag2 is a connected device that vibrates and self-locks to aid shoppers prone to excess in making smarter decisions

Self-control is something that is difficult to exercise for those who love to shop. The iBag2 was created for these shoppers—a purse that self-locks to prevent users from spending money. The bag also has lights and vibrates to remind shoppers to be careful with purchases.

The lockdown feature activates during times that users recognize as personal “trouble” zones. A timer is connected to electromagnets that tracks self-identified moments throughout a day. A GPS tracking system also alerts users when they are near a shopping area that they have pre-identified as a vulnerable spot. Even if a user ignores the warning, the bag locks as a user inches close to the store.

The product only works if a user is aware of their spending habits and inputs this information. iBag2 might seem a little over the top, but for people with uncontrollable spending habits, it may be the solution to correct some of their behaviors.
