Why Volvo’s Concept Child Seat Will Have Parents Rejoicing [Video]

The concept can inflate and deflate at the touch of a button to fold up and fit inside a backpack.

Car seats for children make for awkward, bulky and somewhat heavy lifting when they have to be moved. Enter Volvo, which has developed an inflatable concept child seat.

Made from the same material as inflatable rafts – a durable drop stitch material – the car seat can be inflated in a matter of seconds. Forty seconds to be exact. The car seat then easily deflates and can be folded into a small enough shape to can fit inside a backpack.

While it is just a concept, Volvo presents an interesting solution to an annoying problem for urban parents who have to constantly insert and remove their car seats. Its functionality does seem quite limited though, since it doesn’t have the dual function of many traditional car seats, which can double as baby carriers and sometimes even strollers.

See the inflatable car seat in the video below:
