Smart Baby Case
Earlier this year Samsonite invited designers to develop products that would make it easier for people to travel with their babies. One submission came from Iranian designer Pouyan Mokhtarani who suggested a pod that can be used for casual travel or even during disaster scenarios. (Pics)
So you’ve got a new baby, right? What are you going to do?! I don’t know! You might be in trouble! But you’ve got to buckle down. You’re a parent now. You’d better put that child in a buggy. You’d better put that baby in the “Smart Baby Case.” It’s kind of like a Matrix robot nanny pod sort of thing.
It’s got several doors! The top door is just a little too small to pull the baby out of, but just large enough for parents to easily access the baby. The main door is the big one, the one that lets the baby get in and out. And of course, the Safety Breath doors: except when the air purification unit is on, these doors allow for safe breathing and they automatically shut when the pressure is too low!
Inside you’ll find the communication unit and LED screen. You can look at the baby and the baby can look at you, too! This screen is also near several airblowing units. On the top of this screen unit there’s an orange LED light in the form of the Samsonite logo which shows the quality of the air inside the pod.
Inside you’ll also notice the auto rocking unit operated by a small servo unit located between the wells. Auto Diaper around the bottom of the baby has a moisture sensor which gently flushes away waste with water, the same with solid waste, all flushed away with tubes to the waste storage unit at the front of the case.
Anatomi Paths as their called are custom fitted around the unique child. These are the foam-looking pads you see in the picture(s) below. They’re made of extremely soft, flexible material to support the baby’s body, especially the head and spine. The skull area is protected by liquid filled pads to prevent damage, sweating, and deformation.
The entire unit is powered by rechargeable batteries, alternatively it can be plugged right into the wall.
A message from the designer:
“There is a bit of a misunderstanding in that this is not a device for growing children during their whole life, it is just a device which can provide a safe and healthy condition during 2 or 3 hours while you can`t change your baby or staying in some poor facilities or places during a trip or airport.
Also, this hard case is equipped with removable door; it is usable without any door like other normal baby carriages. Using the door is just recommended in disaster conditions or air pollution or chemical pollution or some other bad condition for the baby’s health.”
