Unfortunately, the Max Motor Dreams is just a one-off pilot, but Ford said the company is considering putting the unique cot into full-scale production after receiving lots of inquiries.
The speakers put on the bottom of the little mattress create the sound of an engine.
Ford has designed and built a crib that simulates auto journeys to help your baby fall asleep. Inspired, and armed with that knowledge, Ford went to work on something that is atypical of them: a smart baby crib. But the automaker has recently embarked on a project that still has something to do with cars with babies in their mind.More news: Susan Rice: 'I Leaked Nothing to Nobody' on Trump Transition
The Max Motor Dreams crib was conceived as part of an ad campaign for Ford's Max line of cars, according to CNN.
There are dozens of useless and overpriced baby "gadgets", but I think I speak for millions of parents who would relish the thought of a good night's sleep without doing any night driving when I say this definitely needs to be a thing. "All you have to do is record (on a dedicated mobile application, NDLR) all the traffic conditions of your route", Ford announces. The base of the crib slowly rocks from side to side, simulating the sensation of a moving auto. 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. With this data, the Max Motor Dreams recreates the specific motion and sound, instead of just a generic sound/vibration pattern.
