Area 52 aims to bring to market what they believe to be one of world's most advanced strollers; Cyberstroller. In a market worth $3bn and having already secured a LOI for up to 30k units, the team have developed a high-tech stroller in collaboration with one of the world's largest stroller manufacturers.
- LOI for up to 30k units from Dorel Juvenile
- Global market worth $3 billion with a CAGR Of 6%
- Broad patent that can be utilised with other load-carrying devices
- Project managed by ex-senior Dyson employee of 22 years
Faced with uneven surfaces and demanding obstacles, the tiny wheels on today’s strollers are ill-equipped to handle most urban environments sufficiently. Outside of cities, they are next to useless, with grass, snow and sand being insurmountable.
In 2016 we recognised that a stroller's performance could be radically improved by completely rethinking the front wheel. The Cyberwheel has been designed in conjunction with Manchester University using a graphene formula for durability, and our selective 3-wheel steering mechanism has been designed to significantly improve stability.
Select a mode on the controller, and the patented Cyberwheel, with its built-in sensors & valves, instantly changes the balls internal air pressure, providing optimum performance across any terrain.
The global baby-stroller market size is valued at $3bn, with technological advancements being recognised as a key growth factor (CAGR = 5.2%). We’ve already secured an LOI for up to 30k units in China, and we’re currently negotiating global distribution agreements with established vendors in America & Europe to help make Cyberstroller become a worldwide success.
We’re currently completing the design for the manufacturing phase and have a broad granted patent for any load-carrying device (wheelchairs, golf carts etc.).
Funds will be used to complete the manufacturing phase and generate pre-sales.
