The powerpram is a motorised pram with a large platform at the rear on which the parent (or pram-pusher) can stand when going up minor hills, or when just plain tired. The controls are incorporated into the push handles in a similar fashion to a motorcycle. The pram is powered by an electric battery which is rechargeable by plugging it in to the domestic mains. It's also possible to switch to manual. For those concerned about safety, the power cuts out as soon as the user stops pressing the handles, just like the hover mower mechanism. The powerpram will also be manufactured from a very lightweight but obviously extra strong material, titanium perhaps?

       ... the powerpram is a far more advanced concept than simply adding a fifth wheel, I have to say...

       Extra points if it has enough gumption that the mom can wear rollerblades and get towed along, too.

       I understand that the new 1800 cc V-twin motorcycle engine from Honda is very exciting. One would not wish to have one's pram underpowered.   

       And welcome to the halfbakery, Lynnihum.

       Bristolz, the mom/pop can wear rollerblades and could even attempt tricks en route just like waterskiers, by attaching a length of cord to the handles of the pram. Just think, it could even turn into a recognised sport...
