Carkoon child seat concept unveiled to media

Submitted by by Kevin on

Media interest in the Carkoon® car seat took off this week as inventor Jullian Preston-Powers unveiled the concept model.

The Carkoon® is a rear-facing baby seat that features a sliding protective shell made from Kevlar and fireproof Nomex, which is capable of keeping a child safe for up to 18 minutes in the event of a blaze. The Carkoon® also contains a transmitter that alerts emergency services with the exact GPS location of the child – giving vital extra information for any rescue effort.

Carkoon® was featured in the Daily Mail, the Belfast Telegraph, and Popular Science in the US. Jullian was also interviewed by the BBC, and you can view the interview here.
