Hoverglide – World’s 1st “floating” Backpack
Derivative of research into power producing backpack frames for the military (which found that energy extraction screws up gait, making it harder to carry), but if instead use gait cancellation motions, allows a net increase in carrying capacity for the same metabolic cost.

Lowepro | Urbex - Laptop Backpacks
The 20L is a good daily commuter apparently, but a little undersized for air travel, but the 28L is too big for commuting. Bottom slip out gear bag is an interesting design.

Hrm, things like this will be necessary in the interim for high horsepower portable VR/AR, but why no USB-C?

Baby Carrier
A tacticool baby carrier. Because babies are a better defense than level IV plate armor?

GoKin Packs | Powered by you
Backpack power generator that recovers walking energy of a sort by attaching ratcheting cables to the back of your shoes. Which means this backpack is effectively trying to trip you by pulling your feet out from under you, if it pulls too hard. Not suitable for hiking through thick underbrush. I wonder how annoying the cable tension is on walking gait/posture. That said, it seems to have pretty good performance as it's effectively using leg extension for power (much like a land rowing machine)

Ergonomic backpack carrying system for greater comfort and safety
Interesting backpack harness design concept, conceptually a little similar to racing 5-point harnesses.

Military Packs, Tactical Backpacks, Molle Packs - TYR Tactical - Plate Carrier, Body Armor, Tactical Gear, Tactical Armor
The Tyr MICO, the backpack of doom!. Or the polite version is a civilian version of the IRONMAN "High-Capacity Ammunition Carriage System" Molle medium frame based ammo carrier backpack/frame for machine gunners (a modern backpack ammo carrier with feed chute, based on a ghetto rig built in Afghanistan out of a an ALICE frame, two welded ammo cans, and a stolen CROWS chute, which was itself inspired by the minigun setup from the movie Predator). Seem to use a fabric covered chain link based chute rather than using the expensive CROWS feed chute.

The North Face announces Avalanche Airbag Safety System (ABS) vest and pack, we go hands-on (video) -- Engadget
You know, this would make for an interesting nonviolent protest support device, turning protesters into giant airballs. It would somewhat protect you from baton attacks from police, if the airbags are large enough so that your hands can't reach out you can claim it was impossible to assault an officer, and they would have to puncture the airbags to stuff you into the paddywagon.

Chrome, Rolltop Backpacks, Ivan | CHROME | Official Site
This is apparently an extremely durable and large backpack, and mostly waterproof (it isn't airtight, but short of full immersion it is waterproof). Also due to insert and material choice, it retains its shape well so it isn't floppy.

SecurePack Laptop Backpack | Mobile Edge
Another decent backpack. The big feature of this one is that it's almost impossible to open it while being worn because of how the zipper system is made, so that's good for paranoid people who travel by public transit, and a little safety of mind regarding stuff falling out while on the move.

CommuterMaxx, Backpack ROADGEAR
Apparently this is a decent backpack, with easy front strap belt and hip belt, and i probably about as large a backpack as one would comfortably want to wear for commuting on a motorcycle. Apparently the interior doesn't have a lot of straps/compartments, so this is oriented more for bulkier contents such as groceries, so if you carry a lot of small stuff it may load shift on your back while on the move.
