ABC's "American Inventor" reality TV show crowned a winner this week, giving amateur inventor Janusz Liberkowski a chance to take his car seat prototype, the Anecia Survival Capsule, to the next stages of development. Liberkowski, who lost his young daughter in a car crash, hopes to save the lives of other children with his innovative car seat design. The Anecia Survival Capsule, which is named after Liberkowski's late daughter, nestles the baby inside a series of spheres that spin during a crash, placing the baby at the safest angle to survive the collision.
Evenflo, a popular baby products manufacturer, announced today that it will partner with 'American Inventor' to continue developing the Anecia Survival Capsule. Car seats must go through rigorous testing to be sure they meet or exceed federal car seat standards before reaching U.S. consumers.
