Brainstorming in class about areas of 'Walking', I chose to follow the train of thought on POSTURE.
The design above is a update of the basic backpack. This new version is equipped with strong poles (in this case, cardboard rolls) to support the back while walking. Straps connect the body across the chest and waist, ensuring that the back stays straight while in the backpack. Slouching means that the back drags the bag with it which in turn is very uncomfortable, correcting the posture.
It extends the idea of traveling with a large backpack around Europe, in which the support comes from front straps and a frame. This version is much more accessible, and meant for everyday use.
