At CES earlier this year something took my eye which I’ve not yet reported. It probably only took my eye because I’m a father of three and prams are an important purchase for all parents. So what could a pram be doing at the largest Technology show in the world? Simple – it was tech packed and geek baby heaven.
The “Origami” is made by American brand 4moms but it’s taken 5 months for any Australian availability to be confirmed. So the time is right to show you this amazing piece of kit.
This pram has headlights. Yep – daytime running lights like the fanciest of new cars make you and your baby more visible at all times, while path lights turn on automatically in low-light conditions. Up on the handles you’ll find an LCD dashboard showing you the temperature as well as trip and lifetime odometer – so you’ll know how far you’ve gone each and every trip.
But those are just added benefits, the real party trick of the Origami is the self-folding. Push or twist one button and the Origami folds itself down. When folded – push the same button and up it comes. Something you can only understand with a video perhaps
New parents rejoice – this little beauty will be available from July here in Australia thanks to distribution from CNP Brands.
Retailers are not yet confirmed but the price is – $1499.95 – yep, you read that right.
To put that in perspective you’re looking at $1559 as an RRP for the bugaboo Cameleon2 (if you don’t know don’t ask) so this isn’t actually an extraordinary price.
And to top it all off – worried about how those lights and self-folding mechanisms will work if the battery runs flat? Worry no more – the Origami is self-charging, so every step you take every turn of the wheels is charging the batteries for you. Brilliant!
If all of that isn’t enough – you can plug in your USB cable and charge your phone too!
