Teen's Brilliant Invention Could Save Kids from Hot Car Tragedies

Alissa Chavez is just approaching her senior year of high school, but she already has a patented invention that could potentially save lives.

She is being honored by the city of Albuquerque for an invention she calls the "Hot Seat." The Hot Seat allows parents to monitor their baby's chair to see if it's overheating. If it detects a problem, an alarm goes off alerting the parents to take the baby out of the heat.

This invention is intended to be used in a car, where KOB 4 reports that, sadly, 44 babies were killed from overheating in just 2013 alone.

Alissa's invention is just in the beginning stages for now, so she has created an Indiegogo campaign to fund its production. She hopes to have it on the market ASAP so that she can begin saving kids' lives across the country.
