I think referring to this over-engineered baby carriage as a ‘robot’ is a bit of a stretch, but if you’ve got $780 to burn and an overly-energetic/clingy baby to deal with, it could be the next best thing to a live-in nanny. Besides a unique horizontal swinging motion designed to lull your child to sleep, the Bomo will also autonomously follow you around the house whilst avoiding obstacles like furniture, pets and other babies that aren’t so privileged.
But that’s not all! Why let Bomo’s sensors decide where it roams when you can switch it into a manual mode and let your kid pilot the chair via an actual accelerator pedal and a fully-functioning steering wheel. On a 3-hour charge Bomo’s battery is good for about 6 hours of use, and all of the upholstery is easily removable and washable since ‘indoor ride-on toys + kids’ is the basic scientific formula for spills.
