Improving the Designs

Today in class we continued to cut out the redesigned backpack. We decided that we need multiple layers to increase the strength of the backpack. Also we will include a water bottle pocket that was not put into our original prototypes. This design was added due to the fact that most backpacks have one. Our first prototypes are being put through many trials to find out what it takes until the bag reaches its breaking point. Tests include amount of weight it can hold and how the bag feels to the user when the weight is applied. These tests will help improve the backpack and make it function better.
