Colin Furze's "megapram" is a stroller built with the parent -- not the baby -- in mind. If the parent is a world record coveter with a need for speed, that is.
"I decided after becoming a dad i should rock the world of child care so tick that box i think," the British plumber and "garage inventor/video maker" brags in the description for the YouTube video he made to document the project.
As Furze tells viewers, his super-stroller has 10 horsepower and four gears as well as "every comfort a normal pram's got." Except, presumably, any illusion of safety. "It's not for women, it's for men," he adds.
According to British newspaper The Sun, the stroller cost Furze £450 -- or roughly $720 -- to put together.
While he's already been accused of planning the project out of laziness, his goal is not to traverse long spaces with his new baby son but to set a Guinness World Record this coming Sunday, Oct. 14. "[A]ll i have to do is break 30mph but as you can guess from video that will happen," he writes confidently.
He's also careful to clarify: "[N]o i havent put a real kid in at speed and no its not road legal hence why i had to film this on a private road."
If Furze does succeed in setting a world record this weekend, it won't be his first. The dad, who appears on British TV show Gadget Geeks, explains in his profile on the show's website: "Over the past years I've broken two world records (the biggest bonfire and the longest motorbike) and set a new record of my own (fastest mobilty scooter, clocked at an incredible 71.59mph)."
