MIAMI (CBSMiami) – JanSport’s latest development is making sure to appeal to kids of the digital age.

The company created 300 prototype backpacks featuring programmable fabric.

The “backpack patch” has the ability to share a music video or even a Facebook page.

JanSport says it’s a high-tech way for teens to express themselves through fashion.

The threads of the bag are arranged in a unique pattern for each backpack to be identified by a QR code.

The backpack is still under testing but could hit the market as early as 2019.
