Here's proof that you don't need a staff of MIT graduates to have and implement a good idea. This low-cost unit transforms from a three wheel stroller to a compact backpack in a few seconds, making it ideal for busy parents who need to juggle a young child with everyday tasks. With its unique rotating and snap lock mechanisms, the handles, seat and wheel struts swivel and fold in, reducing it to less than one third its original size - 56cm x 28cm x 27cm - and slips into a backpack that weighs 4 kg. Designed for children over six months, the QuickSmart is manufactured to Australian Standards, with important features like a five-point harness, parking brakes on each of the dual rear wheels and a single, swivel, dual front wheel for smooth ride and handling. And just like less clever strollers, the QuickSmart has all the comforts parents and children need - the seat and backrest are made from tough, easy care fabric in fashion colours, there's a canopy for protection from the elements and an elasticised mesh pocket that can store the necessities.
