Have children, will travel

Inventive alumnus Kevin McIiver (BSc Mechanical Engineering, 1972) has come up with a solution to a transport problem faced by large families.

His Multimac is the world’s first multiple child car seat; the bench-like system allows parents to fit three or four children into the back of any car, from a Fiat 500 to a Range Rover.

Kevin struggled for 13 years to get the product to market as the authorities were sceptical, but the seat has performed well in safety tests and is finally on sale.

TV celebrity Claudia Winkleman has said it is her favourite gadget and saved her from buying a multi person vehicle.
