About

Since the SEIL bag debuted in public in 2010, we have been doing our best to bring this project to real production. Now we have streamlined manufacturing and finalized the mobile app, so it's time to go live and bring our revolutionary project exclusively to Kickstarter backers. 

Concept 

Usually, bicycle riders use a pouch or backpack to carry a wallet, a mobile phone, water bottles and more. Bicycle riders' backpacks are a must-have item for outdoor activities. On top of this, the SEIL bag gives bicycle riders a safety feature instead of using hand signals. The LED and flexible PCB applied SEIL bag is not only just a backpack, but also a safety device controlled by you. 

The SEIL bag provides you with a simple controller that can transmit many basic signals on the LED display as well as custom messages for others who are driving or walking around you. Simply using the detachable wireless controller enables various signals such as directions and emergency indicators.

Mobile App

As you can see in the video, you can add custom signals through our mobile app. It's now working only with Android-based phones but as soon as we get permission from Apple, we will provide an app for iPhone users too. We will update a user manual for the app when we reach the goal. 

The Bag

Aside from the great safety features with LED display, the SEIL bag provides great storage spaces, as you would expect in a backpack. You can store up to 15" laptop computers and many accessories. 

The Controller

The controller comes with a bracket that you can attach to your bicycle handle. The final version of the controller will be improved for the final production. (It will be even better quality than the prototype one shown in the pictures below)

Water Proof

The SEIL display communicates with the controller using Bluetooth 2.0 technology. This LED display is flexible and also waterproof as you can see in our video. 

The pouch

The Kickstarter special edition SEIL bag comes with a pouch that you can fit a SEIL display in and tie with any type of bag you might have. I will show you many ways of using the SEIL display with any of your bags that you currently use.

Schedule and Goal

This is where you come in! We can't deliver this IT revolution to the world without at least a thousand of you. One thousand forward-thinking, eager individuals that wish to be a part of history, where technology and fashion are seamlessly woven together. Are you willing to step forward and help bring about the SEIL revolution?

At the risk of sounding like every other project on Kickstarter, we have put in a lot of hard work and effort to bring the SEIL bag to this level - and this is purely because we believe in it, one hundred percent. We firmly support the idea of developing a line of wearable IT, and this is the first step in that direction.

We are planning to deliver the SEIL bags in December 2013. As we said before, we have been working very hard to bring this project to production level and finally everything is ready. With support from you, we could reach the 1000-unit minimum quantity for production. Once this project is funded, we will do our best to deliver this to you as soon as possible. 

Please support us and help make the SEIL bag become a real product in the market. The SEIL bag will be the first real example of an interactive safety wearable device to protect you from possible hazards while you are riding a bicycle. We are planning to come out with different versions of SEIL bags and other "wearable IT" items after this Kickstarter project as well if this succeeds.

Risks and challenges
