MDD reader Creaza tipped me to this interesting patent pending - the "Bucket seat fold out diaper changing table." According to this post on transportTrends.com, it was invented by the guy who created one of the first tilt steering columns, and he plans to build them into Chrysler minivans. Sounds like another bulky, cumbersome child care product no one really needs - in other words, the mother's milk of this blog.
The best part is the abstract, the majority of which is excerpted below.
... The table includes a surface member that provides a surface area, a first open end and a second open end. A first panel and a second panel are arranged within the surface member. The first panel slides out of the first open end of the surface member and retracts back into the surface member via the first open end. The second panel slides out of the second open end of the surface member and retracts back into the surface member via the second open end. The first panel and the second panel are used to provide additional surface area for facilitating the changing of an infant or other activity requiring table surface area.
Insert your own "surface member" joke here.
