VIDEO: Prototype stroller for hip adrenaline junkes

A new prototype stroller with skateboard attached is making the news


The longboard stroller is half stroller, half skateboard. Yes, really.


Soon you’ll be able to whizz past other parents in thier traditional strollers on your skateboard with a stroller mounted on top of it. Are you adrenaline junkies out there tempted?

Time magazine has reported that Belgian design firm Studio Peter van Riet has teamed with stroller company Quinny to deisgn and create an “urban mobility concept with an eye to the future”: the world’s first longboard stroller, which essentially takes a traditional baby stroller and affixes it to the front end of a long skateboard.

Peter Van Riet, told The Daily Mail that one of the main principles guiding the project is that it’s an environmentally-friendly alternative to traveling by car or bus.

But is it safe? The longboard stroller is still in the prototype phase and the design team are still figuring out some safety issues at present but we can report that there are brakes attached to the handlebars – so that seems like a good start!

Can you see yourself whizzing around on one? Check out the video and let us know.
