"To paraphrase Doc Brown, if you’re going to build a solar panel and iPod controls into a backpack, why not do it in style.

And that’s what Killa did, with the KILLA Vintage series #1 bags. The base bags are 50 year old backpacks and satchels from Germany — genuine WWII issue. Into these are incorporated touch-pad controls for iPods which communicate with the devices via Bluetooth, and on the back you’ll find a flexible solar-panel from German company Solarc.

The marriage of old and new works well, and the bags themselves have pretty much already proved that they can last, with 50 years on the clock already. If you wan’t one, though, it may just be easier to make your own. KILLA is only selling 20 a year, and right now you’ll need to pay a visit to the store in Vancouver, called ARChitect, where they will sell you all manner of wearable electronics along with, it would appear, some rather eccentric capitalization."

And now, even WWII has been taken over by the iPod! :eek::D
