Sometimes I honestly cannot believe how much our lives depend on technology these days, but it's times like the launch of an exciting new product or the integration amidst different industries that make me want to embrace that involvement, and use it to the fullest of our advantages, you know?
My own fascination with our tech-obsessions reaches far beyond the amount of time my eyes spend glued to some type of back-lit device (hello, astigmatism!), and I'm always inspired by fellow fashion professionals who have found a way to harness the power of technology and use it as a tool to create something great. We've been seeing so many incredible examples of this recently, and whether it's on a NYFW runway, behind the scenes of a fashion blog or in the thick of the design community, it blows me away to think about where we'll be in the next five to 10 years.
I realized recently that as much as my gadgets mean to me, I don't always take the best care of them, and sometimes skip protecting them in the right way because I don't want to sacrifice anything in the way of great design. Before I let this little bad habit of mine come back to bite me in the butt, I know I need to get myself the proper cases and protectors for all of my tech-tools, stat.
If you happen to be in the same boat, you might be interested in this interactive design contest that HP is running in conjunction with Project Runway to find the best look for the next HP Ultrabook laptop case. The submissions have been narrowed down to 40 different options, and now it's time for the public to choose their favorite designs. The bag with the most votes will inspire the next generation of Ultrabook cases, and the designer will be awarded a $10,000.00 prize and a new laptop - pretty awesome if you ask me!
Now it's your turn to either confess or put me to shame... Do you currently carry your laptop or tablet in a sassy little case? I have a Stephanie Johnson case that I love for the latter, but my computer currently gets tossed into a oversized leather clutch like this one when I need to take it on the road. Makes me a little nervous, but I just can't seem to find another functional option that I love!
