GrayMatter Inventions

  1. -The Stroller Story-

  2. I started Gray Matter Inventions after inventing and building the tranStroller to fill a need in our family. Not long after we had our second child, we were at a festival when my wife took our oldest daughter out of the stroller and left to get food. I now had our side-by-side stroller with only one child in it. I was already self-conscious about running people off the sidewalk with the wide stroller, now with one seat empty I felt even more awkward. To make matters worse, I was thirsty and the stroller was too wide to fit into the beer tent. Over the next few weeks I built a prototype convertible stroller based on our favorite stroller--the light, versatile umbrella stroller. We used the prototype for nearly a year and found it to be the most convenient stroller we had ever used. It worked so well that I pursued and recently was granted a patent on the design. I am now looking to license the technology to a manufacturer and share it with fellow parents.
