Car seats are bulky, heavy, hard to carry and are pretty cheaply crafted despite being pretty damn expensive. Moving my kid’s car seat between review cars each week is a consistent pain in my rear.
Their project launched on Indiegogo a couple weeks ago. Called Pico, their car seat dumps the traditional hard plastic shell for an aluminum frame and swaps bulky foam for a mesh. The resulting car seat promises to be very easy to carry thanks to its ability to fold and it’s eight-pound weight. It also fold up for travel so getting through an airport should be much less of a nightmare. On top of all that, the materials are far more recyclable.
You can reserve one of Wayb’s Pico car seats on Indiegogo right now for $270.
