The Origami is the world’s first power-folding stroller: at the touch of a button, it folds itself. It’s also the world’s first cell phone-charging, mileage-counting, LCD-sporting stroller, with generators in the rear wheels that charge the stroller as you walk. Plus, the Origami has daytime running lights, pathway lights for low-light conditions, and sensors that detect when a child’s in the seat (so it’ll never fold by accident). From power folding to cell phone charging, it’s everything a stroller should be.

It’s about time. The world of baby strollers is has gone high tech and high style. With “as you walk” self –recharging generators built into the wheels, this stroller folds up with the touch of a button. Built-in sensors make sure that you’re not accidentally folding your child, headlights turn on automatically to accommodate strolls in low light conditions. An LCD display tells you how far and fast you’ve travelled. Top it off with a one-step breaking mechanism,a sun roof, cup holders and plenty of storage this stroller takes parenting into an entirely new realm.
Best: Designed by moms, for moms, these folks have thought of everything. Just hope the next version has a sensor to tell you about wet diapers.
Needs work: Gulp! I spent less on my first car, the Origami double the price of top of the line strollers like McLaren and Perego.
