Crowdsourcing Mornings: Pix Mini: The First Smart Backpack For Kids

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at:

Last year we launched our first product: Pix Backpack. It has been an absolute game changer for the industry of backpacks. Pix Backpack has been reviewed by top YouTube bloggers and featured on dozens of media. Everyone loved our product and we received great feedback. However, many backers have continuously asked for the same kind of backpack, only for kids. We made it happen and hope you’ll love it as much as we do!

Pix Mini is the first backpack that helps you socialize. By displaying self-made artworks on the backpack, your child can communicate his personal interests to his peers. It is a great way to find friends and express your individuality.  Draw right on your backpack. The integrated in-app image editor allows you to create animations and display them on the ambient screen of the backpack. Each little box on the app corresponds to a specific pixel which can be adjusted in terms of color so that you can make up your own pixel art.

Kids can also share animations with their friends. Simply hit the SHARE button and exchange your pixel art with other Pix Mini owners. The animation will appear on your friend’s backpack within a matter of seconds.  The glowing animation will make your child clearly visible on the road. The geolocation feature will allow parents to see their kids on the map. Additionally, there is an alarm function that goes off whenever a child moves too far away from the backpack.  In addition to the cool features of Pix Mini, it is still a practical backpack that enables your kid to carry all of the school essentials. The trendy design of the backpack will highlight your kid’s style and maintain his confidence on every single walk to school.

As of July 1st, this project has raised $43,000 of their $15,000 goal. This project has 3 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $89, you will get one Pix Mini backpack.  For a pledge of $169, you will get two Pix Mini backpacks.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
