Ford built a baby bed that feels like its driving around the neighborhood

Somebabies wont sleep unless they get a nighttime cruise around the neighborhood, as many parents (my own included) can attest. Thats why Fords latest creation isnt a car at all its a small cot for babies called Max Motor Dreams (via CNET) that simulates a drive using sound and motion, along with LED lighting designed to mimic yellow-hued streetlights.

The sound comes from actual recorded road noise, captured via an app on your phone. The motion? Thats down to small motors under the bed that provide movement so it feels like the crib is in motion even though its not actually moving.

If you are furiously seeking a buy link you can give up now theres only one of these, because Ford isnt a crazy company that likes throwing money away on outlier ideas. The Max Motor Dreams could see an eventual production run, however, pending interest, which might be a thing that happens IRL but probably not.

For now enjoy these images of this precious, eccentric design exercise. The wood trim makes it, really.
