Greyson McCluskey believes he has an idea for a gadget that might save the lives of infants one day and Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am believes in the idea.
The artist, along with several other judges, selected Greysons idea as the national winner in the "Wouldnt It Be Cool If..." contest on Wednesday in St. Louis.
His idea is for a contraption he calls the "Baby Safe Rider," a device designed to prevent infant fatalities by alerting parents or passersby of a baby left in a locked car by accident.
Greyson, 15, a sophomore at Metrolina Christian Academy, competed against 1,100 others nationwide in the contest, which is hosted by Time Warner Cables Connect a Million Minds and i.am FIRST, founded by will.i.am. Connect A Million Minds is TWCs five-year, $100 million philanthropic initiative to get students excited about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.
