LAS VEGAS -- An infant car seat that made its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show is getting a lot of buzz.An app allows it to be tailor made to any car.

Here’s how it works: You use the app to scan your vehicle's VIN number and that tells you how and where to put it.

It auto corrects to the right level of your seat pan, then it adjusts the tension straps.

Once that's complete you can put the child seat into the base and it will tell you if everything is hooked up correctly. Then, at the press of a button, it’s set up.
It also periodically checks the seat levels and connections until the seat is removed.

Here’s another thing parents will love: It will monitor your infant's growth and tell you when your child has outgrown it.

It's already been certified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and is available in June, but peace of mind isn't cheap -- it'll cost you about $500.
