Car Designer Frank Stephenson Reinvents the Child Car Seat

So supercar designer Frank Stephenson comes up with what is claimed to the safest car seat. This uses a special shock absorbing structure similar to those used in tanks

It is rumored to be very expensive....since car seats tend to be $100-300, and on the higher end $500 like those from Clek. I wouldn't be surprised if this thing was $1000.
Hopefully, they'll provide some actual proof that their seat is safer to justify the cost.

When I was shopping for a car seat, I didn't find any one source that told me which seats were actually safer besides the manufacturer claim. They all pass the government standards so I bought the one that I liked the feature and look of. I would welcome a seat that demonstrates improved safety and would gladly pay more for it.
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.
