baby in car seat Self-Installing Car Seat?

New parents know that moment of terror when they let you leave the safety of the hospital with your tiny baby, who you’re now in charge of keeping alive, and you have to put him into the car seat, which you’re sure you’ve installed wrong. Infant car seats are confusing and car seat paranoia is real but now there’s something to help. Someone invented a self-installing car seat. For real!

The car seat is made by a company called 4moms and all you have to do is attach the base to the latches in your car and it does the rest. The fancy base auto-levels, auto adjusts the tension and flashes a comforting display that everything is good to go. “We’ve built a robot in the base of the car seat so that it installs itself, is never installed incorrectly,” says Rob Daley, 4moms CEO and co-founder. “And every time you put a child into the seat it verifies the installation.”

The self-installing seat also comes with its own smartphone app that continuously monitors and checks the seat status while the carrier is connected. The seat’s been certified by the National Highway Safety Administration and fits babies from four to 30 pounds and up to 32 inches long. And get this, Daley says it’ll even monitor your kid’s growth and let you know when he outgrows it!

Of course, all this fanciness comes at a cost. These things sell for whopping $500! And that’s a lot of money for a seat you’ll use for a year or so. If only you could take that “robot” out of the base when your kid outgrown the seat and turn it into a Roomba or something. Hear that 4moms? Get right on that, please.
