Ford designs baby crib that mimics soothing auto ride

09 April, 2017

The Max Motor Dreams looks like a designer bassinet from the outside, except with a large FORD logo. A speaker under the baby plays gentle engine sounds. But that isn't always convenient or easy, which is why Ford has created a cot that simulates the motion, engine noise and even the street lighting of a nighttime drive, so parents can put their babies to sleep from inside their home. They only created a test crib, but are considering putting it into full-scale production. But the automaker has recently embarked on a project that still has something to do with cars with babies in their mind. But this is the first I could find of one that imitates a auto ride, well except of course for the Sleeptight which was released in the late 1980's and was just clipped onto the crib and made it vibrate while making noises and was supposed to help with a baby who was showing signs of colic. Yes, it is a smart baby crib. When it's Ford you can't expect them to miss the minute details. If you live in the right part of the world, Ford is giving it away as part of a raffle if you test-drive its MAX series cars. It also has built-in microphones so you can monitor your child from the next room and it can gently rock the little one to sleep. Ford's latest innovation uses your smartphone to capture your car's movements and sounds and then reproduces them in the crib.
