Got to love the Swedes…

Volvo has always been a leader in auto safety but this is one of their coolest inventions to date.  Earlier this week, Volvo debuted their newest child safety seat concept which is a fully inflatable device designed to make what’s normally a clunky and heavy seat both lighter and more portable.

Designed for parents on the go, this new prototype transforms from a stylish-looking backpack into a rear-facing car seat in less than a minute. You can pump it in the car as the seat comes with its own pump or for those tech savvy folks it’s Bluetooth-enabled so you could pump it remotely. The seat is made with a fabric that can sustain high internal pressure, originally developed by the military as part of an effort to create an inflatable airplane, which is now used by the boating industry. Bravo Volvo!
