The talking handbag is designed to discourage shoppers from excessive consumption. Do you really need this?

On our minds is the talking handbag designed to discourage shoppers from excessive consumption. The “design activist” piece, made by students at a Scottish university, is programmed to question the owner’s purchases through a sensor that recognises when their credit card is removed from the bag. “Do you really need this?” and “You’re already in your overdraft” are just a few of the phrases to come out of the bag’s hidden speakers. Described by its inventors as “friendly but slightly embarrassing”, the bag is not to go on sale but created as a piece of social commentary with the purpose to make people reflect about what they already own and whether they need to buy more.
