We're all familiar with flat-packed furniture, but now an inventor has created a life-saving flat-packed incubator for premature babies.

The incubator is made up of inflatable panels and a heater that can run off a car battery. The parts are easily assembled, making it portable and practical for places such as refugee camps, where expensive medical equipment is not always available.

This amazing invention is a great low-cost way of helping vulnerable babies in the developing world.
