When it comes to cycling on the road, there is certainly a need for a better means of communication between the rider and surrounding drivers. The iPad Backpack is a hi-tech solution that simply makes use of a couple of your favorite personal electronics. Designed by Soohun Jung, the knapsack incorporates a holder for your tablet and links up with your iPhone, which is fastened to your handlebars.

Using an app to sync both devices, you can send messages, symbols and turning signals from your smartphone to display clearly on the touchscreen of your tablet. Because it's slipped into a windowed pocket of the iPad Backpack, the information is visible from inside vehicles just behind you.
