The longer the walk, the cooler the refreshment at the end, thanks to E-bag, a handbag whose cooling system gets its power from being swung back and forth as its owner walks. “I wanted to make a point about the way urban life goes with increased energy consumption,” says E-bag’s creator, Apor Püspöki, a product design student at Moholy-Nagy University of Arts and Design in Budapest, Hungary. “We have responsible design thinking.”
The E-bag has a rotating handle attached to a dynamo that charges a storage battery via arm motion. The cooling system uses so-called Peltier technology, a kind of solid-state heat pump that transfers heat from one side of the device to the other side. Cooling status is indicated by three LED lights. The capacity of the bag is approximately three liters.
