2. Keybag by Joao Sabino Studio [link]
Keybag, is a “container” built with 393 keys from computer keyboards. There is the intention to generate a shape from fragments (keys), altering their order without loosing the bond to the primitive object. This lack of order allows the singularity of each object, which becomes itself, a communication vehicle that can be configured to act as a message, encoded or not. Is shape suggests a lady’s handbag like a “pochete”.

This eye catching pair of “Beauty and the Geek” jeans is designed by designer Erik De Nijs. These “modern shaped trousers which is often worn by youngsters..” are the perfect solution for Googling quick exits while running from the fashion police. Ah, but look closely! Now as you jump over fences and dodge barking dogs, you can take your chase music with you. Built into the knees are a pair of crotch rocking speakers that really add that extra level of excitement while sticking it to the man. Around back you have the added convenience of a back pocket for your “mouse”(which will be your only friend at this point). And for you gamers, there is even a joystick controller located just behind the front zipper. Looking at the key arrangement I am oddly compelled to want to write “poop” over and over again.
