So let me start by saying that I have not physically seen or touched this backpack, but I think it looks really cool so I had to feature it.
The Meiosis Turtle Backpack is not for that average backpacker, it is for someone that wants to stand out from the crowd.
I don’t like to do this often, but what Gilad Davidi says is so perfectly that I decided to quote him word-for-word:
The backpack is the development of a new way of assembly that utilizes the physical attributes of the materials from which it is made. It is constructed of a three-dimensional polygon system, which is the result of released tensions and convergence of the material.
While the backpack parts are in that state, the bag gets its exterior shape, and remains so due to geometric locks as a result of the shrink. The relationship between the parts enables the opening and closing of the backpack, and determines its design and unique shape.
That is really cool!! Gilad hails from the Shenkar College of engineering and design in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Feel free to reach out to Gilad via his website… which is where I also got the images.
