Typical knapsacks are overrated, what you want is the Laser Backpack. Of course, it comes with a responsibility that many may not want to shoulder -- the responsibility of scanning rooms. What now? Oh yes, this tech-savvy bag can map out an interior with the help of four cameras and lasers, generating a 3D model.

Developed by a UC Berkley team, the Laser Backpack can mean exciting things for services like Google Maps. Yet commercial value aside, the Laser Backpack can serve simply as a glance into interiors without going anywhere.
