Geek Out Your Tot With ‘Tron’-Style Baby Stroller
As any parent knows, strollers are great for toting your tots around, but, let’s face it, they just don’t have that cool factor. To remedy this, research engineer Bhautik Joshi at Industrial Light and Magic tricked out a baby stroller with electroluminescent wire and made something worthy of ‘Tron.’
With the flick of a switch, the Graco stroller glows in red and blue, creating something that a young computer program might use to cruise around the Game Grid. (Watch the movie if you don’t get that reference.) It’s truly awesome and could be as close to a real-life Light Cycle as we’re ever going to get.
But according to Joshi, he’s not quite done tinkering with the stroller. In the future, he plans to make it more of a lowrider by installing hydraulics and 19-inch rims. Consider us first on line if this thing ever hits the market.
