A new car seat made of Kevlar, the same material used to make body armor, has been introduced by a British company in what feels like an infant seat fit for the Starship Enterprise. The rear facing seat is fireproof, bulletproof and contains a miniature airbag. It also detects flying objects and closes it’s infant passenger into a protective cocoon to prevent items from hitting the baby in a crash or a sudden stop. The seat also comes with emergency transmitter signals and GPS, giving emergency crews coordinates and details of an accident.
The seat is meant to spin so getting a baby in and out of the cocoon seat is easy, especially when it’s in ‘pod mode’.
The infant seat is called the “Carkoon” has just gone through it’s initial testing phases in the U.K. and is expecting to be approved for consumer purchase sometime next year. The cost is expected to be around $800 U.S.
Perhaps the only thing this seat fails to do is make a sandwich.
