Keep Your Kids Safe in Auto Wrecks with the Babyark’s Sensor-Laden Anticrash Materials!
Babyark is a startup that aims to revolutionize child safety technology in vehicles with its self-referential car seat set. According to the company’s founder and CEO, Shy Mandel, “while safety features for adults in vehicles have evolved dramatically over the past 10 years, child passenger safety technology has remained stagnant.” The Babyark car seat aims to change this by taking a holistic approach to safety through both the hardware of the seat and the software, including safety sensors that communicate with a smartphone app.
Unlike traditional car seats made of plastic and styrofoam, the Babyark is constructed of anticrash materials and features a shock-absorbing SafeCoil that absorbs forward momentum in the event of a crash. In the unfortunate event of an accident, a set of internet of things (IoT) sensors will record the crash telemetry and send it to first responders to help them more quickly and effectively treat the child. The seat also includes an app for both Android and iOS that reminds forgetful parents if they leave their child behind in the car, and the seat itself will not engage with its base unit if it is improperly seated, indicated by a red LED light ring that turns green once everything is correctly set.
The Babyark car seat is rated to accommodate infants and toddlers weighing between 4 and 65 pounds in the front-facing position, and up to 55 pounds in the rear-facing position. It is currently available for pre-order at $990 and will increase to $1,190 when it is officially released later this summer. With its innovative approach to child safety and its focus on both hardware and software, the Babyark car seat is a promising new option for parents looking to ensure the safety of their loved ones on the road.
