Manual bagTo create accessories that are compatible with the owner and their belongings
As men often find themselves short of pocket space, the popularity of the man bag is growing.
The idea behind the Project is to develop a handbag designed to carry small items that are usually kept in pockets or wallets. The handbag will include an innovative opening mechanism for more convenient carrying of small personal items. The Project provides an opportunity to apply engineering principles to enhance the bag’s functionality, through an automatic system to open and close using just the touch of the palm.
