The Tessel Jet Pack Backpack may look tough and sophisticated, but it is designed to tap into a person's childlike sensibilities. Inspired by classic building block toys, the interlocking triangles that make up the facade of the knapsack can be played with. With this added level of fun interactivity, the accompanying tag line reads, "Let your imagination take flight."

Designed by Tessel Supply, a company based in Salt Lake City, Utah, the Tessel Jet Pack Backpack is as practical as it is playful. It boasts two compartments one of which is faux fur lined for added protection when holding laptops. Available in two colors, black and reflective silver, the Tessel Jet Pack Backpack is a finalist in the IDSA International Design Excellence Awards 2013 competition.
