Always known for its safety, Volvo is broadening its horizons by trying to make parents’ lives easier.

As its name suggests, the concept is an inflatable rear-facing child seat. It features ground-breaking technology from the Swedish automaker. Not only does Volvo say it is safe and easy to carry, but it will enable parents to use it in situations that aren’t typically practical for the traditional child seat.

Inflatable in just 40 seconds, the seat only weighs 11 lbs and features an innovative pump system that is silent and efficient in its construction. It can also be deflated with an integrated pump that can be controlled via a Bluetooth connection. Perhaps one of the biggest draws, the seat is compact enough once deflated to fit into a weekend bag.
