Boy develops device to help prevent heat stroke in babies

Shared by Ana Duarte on 2019-03-12 18:30

About the solution

The innovation works by being attached to a car seat and detects, using sensors, the temperature and the presence of the child in the seat. It also has a fan that blows cool air until parents and authorities are notified.

The first prototype was made of clay, and then of plastic, created using a 3D printer.

Bishop launched a crowdfunding campaign to further develop his product. Now he has the support of Toyota and he already patented the invention, which he hopes to sell for 50 USD.

The kid is a serial innovator and many of his innovations were created to help others.

“My dream is to have many inventions that save lives”, the boy said.
