Actually, it's probably closer to a revolution in baby transportation. Or, for the less starry-eyed folks out there, it's a handcart/wheelie for babies.
Designed to be used on public transportation like, say, the bus, an option which usually drops off the radar of stroller-pushing parents, the Smart Buggy seems awfully urban to have come from a little sheep-filled country like New Zealand. The Smart Buggy's wheels and legs fold completely away, without having to take the kid out of the rig, and he becomes just an elaborately wrapped piece of carryon luggage.
It looks a lot like a backpack, but the large molded tires let you drive it like a wheelie-popping stroller or pull it like a wheelie suitcase. At 12 lbs, it's not the lightest stroller out there, but it's in the zone. And besides, who cares? Now that you can take the bus again, you don't have to heft the stroller up and down the subway stairs anymore.
Best of all, it's free! Or at least there's no price set on the website yet. Stay tuned.
