Why would a company that creates baby products have robotocists on staff? Well, check out what 4Moms' Origami stroller can do:
How awesome is that? In addition to the physical feature it has—the onboard storage and the peekaboo window that I'd imagine are de rigueur—it's the technical aspects that most impress me. Having a generator in the wheel that automatically charges your cell phone seems particularly brilliant.
Then there's the LCD dashboard, which sounds gimmicky at first, but useful on closer inspection: While you might be able to do without the speedometer, an odometer tells you how far you've traveled and the current ambient temperature is displayed, helping you decide whether you ought throw another layer on your tyke.
And of course, there's that crazy power folding/unfolding operation. (And yes, it's got baby sensors, so it cannot accidentally be activated while the child is onboard.)
Pittsburgh-based 4Moms has been around since 2005, and their latest product is the Breeze, a foldable combination crib and playpen:
The Breeze recently scooped up a 2013 Red Dot Product Design Award in the "Best of the Best" category.
