An inflatable incubator can save premature babies in areas without full medical facilities.

This accordion-like instrument is called a concertina, and each end of its case contains electronics, including a ceramic heater, fans, a humidifier, and a computer, Fast Company reports. The collapsible middle section extends out and can be inflated into a bed.

Some places “aren’t great places to be born, but new cheap and easy-to-transport neonatal tech might make it a little safer,” the article concludes.

The design is an entry in this year’s Dyson Awards.
