Volvo has recently unveiled its compact inflatable rear-facing child safety seat that according to the manufacturer can easily fit into a weekend travel bag once deflated. If you are a parent, then this must sound like a dream come true – a child seat that shrinks!
The invention weighs eleven pounds, which is about half the weight of a standard child seat. It takes around 40 seconds to inflate or deflate the seat thanks to a silent air pump attached to it. The seat even has Bluetooth connectivity, which allows it to have a range of possible features as well as to inflate or deflate remotely.
