Stroller Lust - The Power-folding, Self-Charging, Beyond-my-price-range Origami Stroller

If I won the lotto, I would pay off my parents' mortgage, set up a ridiculous trust fund for Andrew... and buy the Origami power-folding stroller from 4Moms. Not only does this baby power fold, but it has an on-board LCD screen that tracks the temperature, your walking speed, and how far you've walked. It has daytime running lights and pathway lights, four-wheel independent suspension and a sensor so that the stroller won't fold while your kid is in it. Oh yeah, there is also a generator in the stroller's wheel so that you never have to charge the glorious thing or use batteries! And that's just scratching the surface of what the Origami offers (full specs HERE).

I want one!! But at $850 retail price ($499 now for a limited advance quantity through 4moms before the official product launch this fall), it really is beyond our means (especially since it is only a single stroller and we hope to have use for a double stroller in the future.) But a mom can dream of lotto millions and a future double Origami--and, in the meanwhile, be mesmerized by the power fold video over and over again.

Ooooooh. Aaaaaaah.
