Grab and Go Backpack #HackPack

by Sky Shin

Published on September 3, 2015

A vending machine you can bring along with you! Hungry while walking to your next class? Just press the button, grab, and go! A simple portable vending machine on your backpack with colorful lights.


First, I came up with ideas of my ideal backpack. Vending machines were always in my interest so I decided to go with that idea.

Second, I decided what bits I will need to make this. I tested out different bits and figured out how it should fit on the backpack.

Finally, I tested the completed little bits backpack to see if it worked fine and thought of what improvements I can make. I only had 10 modules from the base kit so there was not much I can do. In the end, I put the bargraph just to add a finishing touch for some color and better visual appearance. It is also better since there will be light at night. #HackPack
