Now this definitely isn't Superman but I think it's something that's equally as super for a woman: the Bag TV.
I have a lot of friends who groan (either inwardly or outwardly) when their proud husbands or boyfriends present them with some techie gadget for an anniversary or a birthday. When they complain, I always reply that at least their man didn't get them tools or some appliance (like my brother once did for his girl. That story did not turn out very well for him.)
But this time I think that this would be a gift that a lady who loves her bags and enjoys her daily soaps would fancy.
The Bag TV is an innovative fashion-accessory-slash-portable-video-player in one. Beneath a transparent shield on one side of the bag lies the 7-inch screen which is integrated with a DVD/MPEG player, a USB port, and an SD card slot.
To the woman who's always on the go, this could mean a lot of things.
The Bag TV would be your perfect companion on long car trips or when you're sitting on the train or the bus on your way home from a stressful day at work. You can also catch up on an episode of your favorite show while you're doing a number two or play some funny home videos for your friends during brunch. Upload photos into a USB or SD card and have your bag act as a digital photo album when you're in the mood to show off your family or prized rose garden to anyone who would look and listen--the possibilites are varied and endless.
The player is powered by a rechargable battery that can play 2.5 hours' worth of media before needing to be recharged. While it is functional, the Bag TV was also envisioned with style in mind so its makers have happily released seven vibrant colors for the bag.
You can also just purchase the bag without the media player if you want to switch up your bag to fit your outfit without having to leave your personal movie player at home.
In my opinion, it's a cool idea, I'm sure that it will become quite a chore to lug around after the initial excitement and novelty wears off. I'm sure it will have its moments though, specially during boring dinners or during awkward social situations that could use an ice-breaker in the form of a private viewing of a short, funny clip careof your multimedia-capable handbag.
But what do you think, ladies? Is this a hit or a miss?
