Smart Baby Case Diasterproof and Travel-ready

Traveling with a baby can be challenging. You need to make sure there's a solid supply of diapers and food as well as lug around that bulky stroller. Sure it comes in handy when you're transporting your little one, but it becomes the instrument of the devil when it encounters some stairs. It's even worse with the initial setup. I've seen too many parents struggle with getting the blasted thing set up while trying to comfort a crying infant. Whew!


Luggage company Samsonite, held a competition a few months back looking for designers that could design a better way for parents to transport their children. One such concept came from Iranian designer Pouyan Mokhtarani. Called the Smart Baby Case, the design is a hard case pod that borrows design cues from the humble egg, a shape already familiar to a child. The case would keep baby safe and comfortable while the parents navigate the hustle and bustle of pedestrian traffic or get to safety in the case of an emergency.

Baby is placed in the pod via the large clear hatch in the front which also allows parents to keep a close eye on their child. There is a smaller top door in the larger hatch so parents can have quick and easy access to baby. The top door also holds a communication system complete with a baby monitor via web cam so parents and baby can maintain visual contact. There are also safety breathing doors that supply the pod with a steady supply of fresh air. If the air pressure becomes too low or the air quality is poor the safety breathing doors close and air purification system kicks in.


The child's head and spine are supported by flexible, soft foam pads called Anatomi Paths. The pads would prevent sweating and come in different sizes to ensure the correct fit every time. For added safety, baby's head is cradled by liquid filled pads that protect from sudden jarring as well as head deformation.

The diaper bag would be a thing of the past with the Smart Baby Case. Using a moisture sensor, all wastes would be instantly washed away by water pumps to a waste storage compartment located on the front of the case.

Unfortunately, the Smart Baby Case is only a concept, but maybe with enough demand it will go into production sooner than later.

If they figure out how to make that grow with a kid until they're like say, 18, I could maybe get on board with this kid thing.
