This 10-Year-Old Boy Invents A Genius Device To Help Children Dying In Hot Cars After His Neighbor’s Death

According to statistics, since 1998 around 712 children are thought to have died from heatstroke in the US alone after being left in hot vehicles. But thanks to one bright 10-year-old boy called Bishop Curry from McKinney, Texas, tragic and preventable deaths like these could soon be a thing of the past.


The fifth grader has invented something called the Oasis, a clever little gadget that monitors the temperature inside the car. Once it gets to a certain level, the device emits cool air while simultaneously alerting parents and authorities via an antenna.

The idea for the Oasis came to Bishop after he learned that his neighbour’s 6-month-old infant had died from being in an overheated car, and although he only has a 3-D clay model of the device at the moment, he and his father have so far managed to raise over $24,000 for their invention on GoFundMe. 

The money will go towards manufacturing the device as well as securing the patent for it, so if you haven’t already, head on over to their fundraising page and help to bring this brilliant project to life.

One of them, sadly, was a 6-month-old infant who lived next door to 10-year-old Bishop Curry

After learning about it, the boy decided he could prevent this, and created a device called Oasis

The Oasis monitors the temperature of the car and emits cool air when the vehicle gets too hot

The clever device will also use an antenna to alert parents and authorities

So far they’ve managed to raise over $24,000 on GoFundMe, with money going towards securing a patent as well as manufacturing the device
