Awesome cartoon-like gadget bags now shipping, prices start at $79 [Gallery]

This is not a cartoon bag. Seriously.

JumpFromPaper (perfect name, eh?) offers a line of handbags, profile bags, carrying pouches, etc., which look colorful and two-dimensional, and will hold an iPad, MacBook or just about anything else.

So, where did the idea come from?:

JumpFromPaper™ is a playful and innovative line of bags created by Taipei-based design duo, Chay Su and Rika Lin.

One cozy afternoon, the two girls were chatting, when they got to sketching their dream designer bag. A surprising idea popped up – “How amazing it would be if a two-dimensional hand-drawn illustration could come to life as a real bag!” They explored every possibility, rendering fantasy handbags in perspective, and giving birth to JumpFromPaper™.

Each bag boasts a cartoon-like outline and vivid colors that are sure to mess with folks’ eyes. Prices range from $79 to $129, and the Tropical Fish bag (top), in particular, is a gadget-targeted carrier sporting a slim, striped design with polyester fabric for just $79:

Topical Fish is your new protector for your gadgets. This carry pouch perfectly holds your netbook, iPad/tablet, or whatever other accessories you need for a day in the office or fun in the sun. Are they real? Yes they’re real. Although slim in appearance, each JumpFromPaper™ bag has a roomy interior to accommodate an iPad/tablet, book, magazines, and your everyday accessories. A zipper bottom expands the bag for extra room.

Pre-ordered Tropical Fish bags began shipping Aug. 27, and we hope to get our hands on a review unit soon. Check out JumpFromPaper to see what else the brand offers.
