AutoLock Backpack

Lacoste Auto-Lock, a revolutionary backpack that incorporates biometric technology to improve security and peace of mind for our customers, is now available. Our partnership with Lacoste began with the realisation that in today's world, our valuables items are constantly at risk of being stolen by pickpockets and thieves. Therefore, designing the Auto-Lock backpack was critical in order to provide an effective solution to this problem.


Feasibility Study

To ensure that the Auto-Lock backpack is not only functional but also seamlessly integrated into the Lacoste Leather Goods universe. We conducted a comprehensive feasibility study including the electronic study, a mechanical study, a cost study, and an integration study. Our goal was to integrate the tactile detection pad's current technology into the Lacoste world. We accomplished this by creating a system that enables the backpack's zippers to be locked. The locking mechanism was then incorporated into the product using a commanding and obvious housing that blended in with the backpack's aesthetics through its color, pattern, and feel.

Pre-Prod / Mass-Production

During the development phase, we revamped several aspects of the project, including the design and durability of the object. To improve the user experience, we strengthened the material and paintwork and altered the fingerprint registration procedure. The final product we have created at Lacoste is something we are proud of, and we are dedicated to continuous improvement. We made a special mould for the front plate of the module to ensure that the Auto-Lock backpack is of the highest calibre possible. The mould mimics the recognisable "Cotton Piqué" texture of the company. The backpack needed to be practical in addition to being aesthetically pleasing and consistent with the Lacoste brand.
