Ford made a crib that acts like a car

Ford Max Motor Dreams baby cot

'For now, the Max Motor Dreams is a one-off pilot, ˮ Ford says in a news release. To speak scientifically, babies get soothed by the vibration and gentle hum of the engine, just like when someone takes them in the lap and swings them while singing a song.

The automaker has developed a baby crib that simulates a soothing auto ride. But following numerous enquiries, the company is considering putting the unique cot 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. Now, Ford Motor Company is hoping to make bedtime a little easier on new parents. The base of the crib slowly rocks from side to side, simulating the sensation of a moving auto. Yes, it is a smart baby crib. Parents record the sound and movement of the actual family auto. And with all those things combined, a fussy infant is sure to go to sleep in minutes. "All you have to do is record (on a dedicated mobile application, NDLR) all the traffic conditions of your route", Ford announces. Fisher Price had a similar idea with its Cruisin' Motion Soother, and there has also been at least one device built to secure to a crib and provide vehicle ride-like vibrations.

Wie had six birdies - three over her final six holes - and three bogeys in her round. I mean, they helped me get through the rest of the round which helped a lot.

The "Max Motor Dreams" soon to be marketed? Naturally, it gently vibrates and rocks to mimic a ride in the backseat, and even comes with an app created to track your car's route so it can reproduce the movements from that drive for your baby.
