New Product by Bulletproof Strollers Inc.: “SHOWSTOPPER”
SHOWSTOPPER is the new NIJ Level II Armored Bugaboo Cameleon 3 stroller seat, a product developed by Bulletproof Strollers Inc.
Clinton, NJ (PRWEB) April 14, 2014
The new, ballistic-resistant stroller seat, SHOWSTOPPER, is compatible with the popular and fashionable Bugaboo Cameleon 3 stroller frame. Bulletproof Strollers has married fashion with innovative bullet-proofing material to develop and produce the first armored stroller.
The new baby/toddler stroller seat and canopy is made with RynoHide, an American product developed by ballistics company Amendment 2. The patented carbon nanotube technology makes the armor lighter and increases flexibility. Carbon nanotube was chosen to be part of the blend of the ballistic resistant material because it is 30 times stronger than steel, yet five times lighter. As this minimizes the weight of the added armor, the stroller can still be easily picked up, transported anywhere, and stored.
P. Oliver Hsiao, Bulletproof Strollers Inc. founder and President, describes his idea for SHOWSTOPPER, “Like most parents, my wife and I do our best to ensure the safety of our children. Since our kids are very young, our stroller goes wherever we do, and we needed a stroller that is discreet, light, and mobile enough to travel with us. At the same time, we wanted something that provides our kids with that extra measure of protection. As there has been quite a bit of interest from other parents (and parents-to-be), I’ve decided to offer this option to all parents.”
As well, Mr. Hsiao understands that parents are not only looking for safety, but also an attractive product. “Safety and fashion need not be mutually exclusive. We have “married” a popular and fashionable stroller with state-of-the-art bulletproofing.”
Jerry Edwards, fellow Bowdoin alumnus, father and the company’s Vice President of International Sales, explains “In recent years, there’s been quite a proliferation of bulletproof products, for instance, bulletproof backpacks, and armored vests or jackets for children. Ten years ago, I would have never imagined creating armored products for kids. Unfortunately, many parents now have to give thought as to how to protect their kids in unthinkable situations. With that as a given, our company focuses on providing parents with the strongest, most reliable, and lightest options for protecting their kids on the go from this type of threat.” The armor in SHOWSTOPPER meets the National Institute of Justice Type II armor, meaning it has been tested to withstand 9mm bullets and .357 Magnum Jacketed Soft Point bullets at certain velocities.
The company is currently developing a prototype for a bullet resistant double stroller. To view more details about SHOWSTOPPER, the NIJ Level II Armored Bugaboo Cameleon 3 stroller, visit http://www.thebulletproofstroller.com. Check out their Facebook page.
