Stroller goes high-tech: power folding, self-recharging, more




A stroller is a must-have for any parent with a baby or a toddler. But opening or folding one takes some muscle. In this age where convenience is among priorities, the Origami Stroller by 4Moms is worth a look. Call this the high-tech stroller that sounds more like a car:

  • power-folding chassis with a push of a button
  • a battery that recharges as it moves -- you also can plug it in.
  • connect your cellphone to the stoller to charge it up
  • four-wheel suspension
  • running and pathway lights
  • an LCD screen with trip and lifetime odometer, temperature, speed, and child indicator to prevent folding when occupied
  • four cupholders
  • lots of storage compartments
  • contemporary design

All these features don't come cheap, however: $849.99 on the 4moms website, or other retailers.
