Tesla has registered the CYBERBACKPACK trademark. At the same time, a website that used this name to sell a backpack with an aesthetic close to the Cybertruck was taken offline.
What if Tesla one day marketed a backpack that borrowed the aesthetics of its Cybertruck? The Electrek site, specializing in electric mobility, has identified a trademark registration that could well give hope to fans of Elon Musk and Tesla products. At the beginning of April 2022, the company registered the CYBERBACKPACK brand, which literally means “cyber backpack”.
The Cybertruck has become something of a sea serpent in the Tesla universe: presented in November 2019, the improbably-looking electric pickup was supposed to be released in 2021, then in 2022, then in 2023. The company’s loyal customers American only had the mini-Cyberquad to chew on: a children’s version of a quad, also shown for the first time in 2019, which has still not been marketed since.
A Cyberbackpack already existed
To make his fans wait a little longer, will Tesla favor a new derivative product? After the mini-court, the whistle and the beer, it would not be impossible for the manufacturer to embark on a new unusual production.
The name CyberBackpack is not unknown, however: as Electrek rightly pointed out, the term was recently coined by a TikTokeur named Riz. In a video published in March 2022, he presents a kind of hybrid backpack that takes up the style of the Cybertruck, which he would have designed himself. There is a USB port on the side and a padlock to keep it closed.
On the cyberbackpack.com site, he put it on sale for 199 dollars. “ Riz’s dream is for the finished Cyberbackpack to be listed on Tesla’s official website as a derivative product “, it was written. Bad luck, since Tesla registered the CYBERBACKPACK brand, the site is now offline.
Riz introduced himself as a Tesla fan, waiting for his Cybertruck. Maybe Tesla struck a deal with its aficionado, or maybe the company didn’t like using a brand too close to its own. In any case, the firm now owns the term CYBERBACKPACK, and can do with it what it wishes.
