It’s officially summertime – and with the rising temperatures, comes an abundance of preventable h-ot car de-aths. A boy Bishop has invented his very own device capable of saving hundreds of children from heat.
The invention, which he calls Oasis, is a tiny box that straps onto a child’s car seat. When temperatures in the car become too high, Oasis starts blowing cool air on the child’s face. An antenna inside the box also notifies the parents and local emergency services about the possible peril.
Thanks to the $46,000 that Bishop raised on GoFundMe, the youth is currently applying to be granted a patent for Oasis. “Bishop is a 5th grader who is fascinated with making things. From creating a home-made catapult and ping pong ball cannon, to thinking of ways to melt ice and snow on roads without using salt,” wrote Bishop’s dad, Bishop Curry IV. According to the crowdfunding page.
Bishop first got the idea for Oasis when a 6-year-old girl named Fern depart after being locked in a car in Bishop’s hometown of McKinney, Texas. “We live in Texas where h-t car loss are far too common,” added Curry Senior.
While it is unclear how Oasis will be distributed, the remaining funds raised by the campaign will go towards manufacturing and prototyping fees.

Kelite – Children are the future. It took a child to invent a device to prevent an issue that’s been happening for years.
Michael Anthony – Why aren’t more people talking about this? This kid is amazing! GoFundMe put me onto this video, I hope more people find out about this young man and support him. He has a whole book of inventions, we may be looking at another Leonardo Davinci.
Karen Johnson – What happened to this invention? We’re half way through 2019 and no one has come up with a better idea.
According to CNN, more than 38 kids depart in cars every year. Let’s get busy!
Naenatify – Great job! Are you aware someone has claimed your invention as there own?
