E Bag created by Apor Püspöki, a product design student at Moholy-Nagy University of Arts and Design in Budapest,has a rotating handle attached to a dynamo that charges a storage battery via arm motion. The cooling system uses Peltier technology, that transfers heat from one side of the device to the other side. Cooling status is indicated by three LED lights. The capacity of the bag is approximately three liters.
