The multi-tasking unitasker: Bag TV

bagtvIf you are a bit sad because you didn’t get your most sought after holiday gift, then you’re probably not alone. There is some hope for those of you who didn’t receive that new designer bag and that new LCD television. BagTV could fill two voids with one incredibly ridiculous product.

Yes, two products in one amazing combination. It isn’t really a unitasker so I couldn’t include it in that category. BagTV will have to stand alone in all its glory. It is a multi-tasking product of excess.

From the product description:

Bagtv is a totally new concept in bag design, combining bespoke luxury bags with high tech electronic equipment.

The first in a range of new products, is a beautifully crafted ladies hand-bag, which comes in a range of cool colours, leathers, and fabrics, integrated with a high quality 7in TVscreen combining, DVD, and Mpeg player.

The screen sits behind a protective transparent shield and enables the owner to literally watch Films/Videos either on DVD or downloaded to the bag. 

The system comes with full connectivity for use with computers or digital cameras through USB port and SD card slot, allowing the playing of scrolling photos on the bag.

Use on the move, on the way to and from work, for holidays, on trains or in the car.

Use at night in bars, and clubs to show off your latest photos, or favourite videos.

The smart light weight battery system, allows the player to play up to 2.5 hours, movies, video, photos before re-charging.

It comes equipped with its own re-charger unit for use with the mains or in car, together audio/video cables for connectivity with TV .

All in all, bagtv is the latest fashion statement, and doubles as a really useful bit of kit for the ladies to rival their boys toys!

Sorry, gentlemen, this item appears to be just for the ladies — you’ll have to use your small, longer battery life iPhone as an alternative.

    It’s time to watch less TV, not bring it with us everywhere we go (It’s called programming for a reason)!!!

    We didn’t put a disclaimer on this one … so just to ward off potential comments …

    We do NOT want you to buy this. We just want you to laugh! 🙂

    The sad thing is I’ll admit that’d I actually want one of these if it could hold a laptop too. I spend a lot of time on public transport and editing photos. Oh dear.

    Oh no, that’s what ipods were invented for!

    I could see this being useful for a transit commuter who wants to discreetly watch DVDs to and from work, but whoever designed this apparently didn’t take into account the amount of abuse most handbags and totes suffer. That screen would not survive long.

    If that doesn’t spell the end of the handbag as anything but a childrens’ toy, I don’t know what does. Buggy whip!

    Well, I just double checked the date on the calendar because I thought for sure this was an April Fools Day joke!!

    Even my two teen girls think it is pretty stupid!!

    Good gravy–how long did the idiot who invented this think the screen would last?
    I am very rough with my purses, going so far as to have had a horse step on my good coach ™ purse flap 25 years ago!! Oh well, that’s what I get when at a ranch!!
    As I put the purse down on the ground, the silly thing fell over and the flap wound up on the horse’s side of the fence…nice horseshoe imprint…

    Don’t think any TV purse would stand up to that kind of abuse—OR the crap and clutter a mom carries in her purse when the kids are little!! or pre teens/teens…and then what I wind up carrying for the DH, too!!

    Yeah, I have to agree that this bag wouldn’t stand up to much wear/tear without the screen breaking. And for the price (295 pounds, regularly = $450 USD), you might as well just buy an iPhone or a video iPod!

    I like the idea of being able to scroll pics on the bag, but considering the small fortune this thing costs, I’ll just get one of the ones with plastic slots for photos!

    Also, I just saw on the site that if you like the bag but don’t want the TV, you can buy the bag only for only 150 pounds! ;D

    I can’t wait for the Wallet TV, Bowl TV, and TV TV brand extensions.

    The only thing I can think this may be useful for is more walking talking advertising to subject those around the bearer.

    “The first in a range of new products, is a beautifully crafted ladies hand-bag…” Sorry, but that looks like a throw back to a 1970’s cheap travel bag.

    How much does this thing weigh?

    What are recorders for? Set your timer, don’t try to watch TV on the train, let alone in the car! (Visions of someone trying to drive and watch TV at the same time, visual GPS units are bad enough!)

    And I can really see how your drunk friends at a bar are really going to get a lot out of your showing them your favourite photos or videos.
