Have you ever just taken a second to think about how wasteful walks in the park with your child are?
Okay, probably not.
But now there is a smart stroller from 4Moms called Moxi.
That takes the energy from your walking and transforms it into something that gives juice to your phone, lights your path with headlights, And actually powers a little LCD screen that tells you how far you've walked.
It's a pretty cool idea, and it actually isn't that un-affordable, it's $700.
Now, yes, that's definitely a higher end stroller, But it also comes with really helpful design features.
The seat can be reoriented in three different ways.
Forward, backward and flat for infants.
That kind of design, even without those smart features, will still cost you a pretty penny with most strollers.
The way that this stroller works is basically gathering.
Energy in generators that are attached to wheels, storing them in a battery that's affixed to the bottom of the stroller.
That energy can then do things like charge your phone through this USB port.
While it'd be nice to see some deeper features on the app and some more effective headlights on the stroller itself, this really is a cool idea and I can't wait to test it out myself.
