It's all but impossible to leave your house with just your phone and wallet these days. You also need charging cables, maybe a backup battery, and a host of other accessories you probably can't survive the day without. In fact, most of us leave the house better equipped than astronaut's taking a spacewalk -- which is why this sci-fi-inspired Space Odyssey messenger bag seems so fitting.
Designed by the folks at ThinkGeek and exclusive to its site, the $US50 bag is styled to look like something NASA would give its astronauts. But with 12 separate storage areas and enough capacity to swallow a 17-inch laptop, it's far too large to take up to the space station.
It's perfect for your daily excursions, with drainage holes in case you spill a bottle of Tang inside and rubber feet on the bottom so you can plop it down anywhere. And while the bag's gleaming white exterior might end up looking dirty, there's a silver lining inside -- no, literally, an actual silver lining, which will do a better job of standing up to spills and grime.
