It has been designed to help U.S. students save money and time during the coming years.
University of Washington professor David T. Wiles and his team created a backpack that holds a laptop, printer, camera and two pens.
They said their backpack could be a perfect travel companion for students looking to travel abroad, as it would be lightweight and easy to transport.
