Origami stroller folds and unfolds on its own

4moms-Origami-Stroller.jpg

The “Origami” stroller from 4Moms is going to appeal to nerdy papas, too: powered by an onboard generator that recharges the unit every 300 feet, the Origami folds and unfolds itself automatically. There’s a built-in safety mechanism that prevents the device from closing in on your child and reducing it to jelly. It’s a shame there’s no depression to hold the child when it’s closed — it could be Baby’s First Power Armor.

It’ll cost you $650 when it’s released next year. A fair chunk of change, but not all that expensive when compared to other premium prams.

    Yeah, right. Baby gets a cut, stroller tastes blood for the first time… this won’t end well.

    Won’t squash kids?! Ha! I can see the injured infants and the lawsuits rolling! Horrid idea, and how lazy do you have to be! Buy a British McLaren and be done with this useless gadgetry.

    Should totally be wired with the Transformers SFX.

    *wrunk-rOnK-RaNk-RINK!!*

    On a tangentially unrelated note, especially of things “vaguely unsettling”, found a gem in YouTube’s menu attached to the stroller vid: Ninja cat getting closer without moving. Must see, it’s rather spooky, and reminiscent of the hedge scene from the newer The Shining with that guy from Wings.

    Because, you know, safety devices have never failed….

    Er, where do the diapers, formula, and various assorted baby-crap^H^H^H^Hparaphernalia go when the stroller folds up?
