We're moving one step closer to Roger Rabbit, thanks to a new accessory item from a Japanese designer. JumpFromPaper sells bags that use primary color blocks and heavy outlines to trick your eyes. The result is a bag that looks two-dimensional, despite being fully-functional three-dimensional bags.

The bags became a hot topic on Twitter with the keyword "2D bag," and they were featured on Sukkiri!!, a mid-day variety show. You can watch the clip below to see them in action. Think these bags would ever go over well in the US? It's certain they would turn some heads.
