Statistics in America, recorded ever since 1988 have shown that around 712 children have passed away due to a heatstroke. This happens mostly when children are left inside closed vehicles for a longer period of time.
However, a 10-year-old boy, known as Bishop Curry from McKinney, Texas, finally put a stop to this occurrence.
Namely, the boy manufactured a thing known as the Oasis. This is a miniature gadget that serves the purpose of calculating the temperature inside a car.
Once the limit of normal temperature is overreached, the gadget begins to release cool air and sends warning signals to parents and local authorities through an installed antenna.
The invention was first produced after Bishop learned of the death of a neighbor of his, a 6-month-old baby that died due to overheated surroundings exposure.
For now, the device is still in a 3-D clay model, but he alongside his father, have been working tirelessly to raise money on GoFundMe. So far they managed to collect $24,000.
This money will serve a purpose of branding the gadget and improving it into an actual, usable device. After learning about his baby neighbor’s death, Bishop decided to invent a device that will prevent children from dying due to overheating
The device works with an antenna, which alerts parents and authorities of possible dangers
Around $24,000 have already been collected on GoFundMe. The money will be used to enhance the device’s performance and patenting it.
