The iBag Locks Your Wallet And Flashes Lights When You Need To Stop Shopping
January 31, 2014
We’re all for going on a shopping spree from time to time, but if you need your wallet locked-up to stop spending, well, you have #ShoppingProblems. Lucky for you, an Australian company just created the iBag (yes, it’s not from Apple). This high-tech handbag contains a smart sensor on the owner’s wallet to track spending. It knows when you are on a shopping spree or walk into your favorite store and automatically locks. It also flashes lights and sends a text to your “responsible other” (don’t list your bestie!) when you enter a danger zone–aka the mall.
This bag basically seems like Fort Knox if Fort Knox was located on Fifth Avenue. But it won’t solve all your spending problems. Sure, it might stop you from buying your 5th pair of Nike sneakers, but there’s no way for it to stop you from overspending. Once you whip out your card to splurge on some new spring makeup, the bag can’t stop you. The iBag won’t go into production until enough people show interest, but we have a feeling that will happen sooner than we think. Especially with all the winter sales happening right now…[Daily Mail]
