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.
Adidas to Mass-Produce 3D Printed Shoes in Vats of Warm Liquid Goo

Spotify could go public in an unusual way
With varying degrees of enthusiasm, the rest of the industry will probably follow - even if some labels hold out for a while.
Fed minutes reveal debate over inflation and Trump
Trump has promised to lower corporate tax rates and spend at least $1 trillion on infrastructure but has provided little details. The yield on the 10-year Treasury rose to 2.38%, two basis points higher than just before the release.
The bad news is the crib is not available for sale. It's dubbed the Max Motor Dreams, and it's essentially a "smart bed" for babies that can simulate the feel of riding in a vehicle - a well-known trick for parents with little ones that have difficulty falling asleep.
