Today we brought you the news of a man who's built the world's fastest motorised pram.
It got us thinking...has the Midlands seen inventions like this before..?
Well, apparently so.
In the early part of the 20th century, William Dunkley arrived in Birmingham as a young man from his home in Stratford-on-Avon.
He became known for producing Dunkley Prams, which were noted between the wars and just after for their high quality.
But one of his other innovations was a baby carriage known as the ‘Pramotor.’
The pram was linked to a motorised one-wheeled scooter, meaning the more adventurous nanny could travel along at quite a pace.
They were not allowed on footpaths and had to ride on the roads along with other vehicles, making it a bit of a risk.
