In an integration of fashion and technology, two handbags with flashing lights were created by Debra Ansell that can be customized to the user's discretion.
One of the designer's bags looks like a small beach purse and can be programmed to display flashing lights in the pattern that the designer or user wishes. The other bag is bucket-shaped and actually connects to Twitter so that anyone who uses the hashtag #wearables -- referencing wearable technology -- will have their Twitter handles appear in the form of LED lights on the bag.
The unique concept started as a personal project for the designer but proves the creativity that technology allows in something as simple as a fashion accessory. The handbags could help pave the way for more interesting and utilitarian fashions and accessories.
