Roller Buggy 2.0 Keeps On Rollin'

When we last saw Valentin Vodev's prototype for the Roller Buggy at London Design Festival in 2006, it simply had adapters for installing your favorite Maxi-Cosi car seat where the scooter's hood ornament would go.

Now [or sometime between 2006 and whenever the gadgetblogs started chattering about it] Vodev has added an actual stroller seat option.

It's still not in production, though. Would it kill them to switch the seat to face the rear? Maybe that's not the best choice of words.

Great concept, but a couple of things:

1) You are correct Greg, the child seat is clearly facing the wrong way, but it might scare and/or scar the young 'un to see a parent doing the scoot-bob action. How about a roll bar instead?

2) There's evidently no way to steer!?!? According to SCIENCE, four wheels and no apparent leaning (ala Mini-Micro scooter), or spinning (ala Xootr) means bee-line only
