4Moms Self-Installing Car Seat Announcement

4Moms Self-Installing Infant Car Seat: Ga Ga or Gag?

When an entire convention hall is still talking about a product two days after its grand unveiling, you know you've created some buzz. That's just what 4moms did with the introduction of an infant seat that actually installs itself. Yes, you read that right — the 4moms infant seat is the first electronic car seat and one that features technology to self-install, with auto-leveling and auto-tension control.

Knowing that 73 percent of all car seats are not installed correctly, 4moms designed one that takes the guesswork (and fire station installation check) out of the equation. An LCD screen on the seat's base confirms that everything has been done correctly and that the seat is safely installed. And lest anyone think that 4moms is only concerned about the tech side of things, the seat features side impact protection bolsters for added safety and a no-rethread harness for ease of use.

I don't know a single parent who hasn't struggled with their child's car seat at some point, so the reasoning behind the seat makes sense to me. Just as 4moms tried to revolutionize the stroller industry with a full-sized buggy that opens with the push of a button (and has an onboard generator, daytime running lights, and a cellphone charger), they're hoping to do so with this car seat, but would you buy it?
