Pix Mini has kids playing games and display drawings on the back of a smart backpack. It’s the latest product from Pix, which earlier made a smart programmable backpack for adults.

The new backpack for kids is smaller, and it can connect to any iOS or Android smartphone device. Kids can program it to display drawings, animations, and puzzle games. Moreover, the backpack has some new safety features.

“We connect portability with the creativity,” said Pix CEO Margaret Rimek in a statement. “More importantly, through a mere backpack, we allow people to express their feelings and emotions.”
