Wearable tech is all around us these days. From smart watches and fitness trackers to compact GPS devices – technology is always literally at our finger tips. When wearable technology first became a thing, it was far from fashionable. But over the years, as technology advances, and especially as they are able to cram more things into less space, it’s actually becoming less “tech” looking and sleeker and more easy to fit into your wardrobe.
Now, if you happen to be a seven year old girl you might think tech is cool but you might not think wearing a heart rate monitor is. But, what about a purse that displays graphics or messages? It’s like the 2018 version of passing notes in class without actually have to pass a notes (in case you are wondering yes seven year old girls do indeed still pass notes in class).
Project Mc2 Smart Pixel Purse
Show off the tech genius in you with your own Pixel Purse. Customize the multi-color LED display with your own designs or phrases using FREE iOS and Android app. Also, comes pre-programmed with 10 animations for easy out-of-the-box play.
This isn’t the first Project Mc2 product from MGA Entertainment that Molly and I have reviewed but I can tell you that so far this is her favorite (and that’s high praise). And I can easily see why. Even before she realized she could write her own messages and make her own designs she loved the idea of this purse.
So, how does it work? As cool as it is, it’s pretty darn easy to work. The purse comes preloaded with 10 animations and you simply turn the power on and you can cycle through the animations and messages by pushing the button on the front.
I should have taken this picture in the dark so you could see the lights more! They are there I promise.
So the built in graphics are cool but the BEST part about this pixel purse is that you can make your own! All you need is a smart device to dowload the app on to. The pixel purse is compatable with the following devices:
- Nexus 6
- Samsung Galaxy S8
- Samsung Galaxy A7
- Samsung Galaxy S5
- Samsung Galaxy S4
- Samsung Galaxy Note 4
- Samsung Galaxy Note 8
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 4
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S2
- LG G5
- LG V20
- iPhone 5s and up
- iPad Air and up
Once you download the free app you can start designing your own graphics and messages.
After you are done designing you simply plug the phone into the purse and upload the designs. Note that you use the headphone jack to connect so if you have a device like the newer iPhones you will need the headphone adapter that came with your phone to connect.
Once your design is uploaded to the purse it is saved there for future use so no need to keep the phone connected.
This is such a fun activity. Molly kept busy with this for quite a long time, writing me “secret” messages and playing with designs. I think this would make a cool gift for her bestie for her birthday so the girls can “pass notes” (but not in class!) the high tech way!
