Implications - Today, people are constantly on the go and are often out and about more than they are lounging around at home. Being away from home creates the need to have items that would generally be on hand in a home surrounding. The featured solar-powered purse is a great example of a product that took a basic home need and transformed it into something portable. Essential items should be easy for a person to throw in a bag or inside their pockets.
