Ford created a crib that acts like a auto

The Max Motor Dreams looks like a designer bassinet from the outside, except with a large FORD logo.

The parent collects the sensory elements of the ride via a smartphone app and transmits them to the cot, which combines low engine sound, a gently rocking motion and surrounding LED lights simulating passing streetlights. Ford has been asking itself all these questions, apparently, because it just debuted a smart crib for infants that essentially mimics a vehicle ride. Ford explained how they borrowed the same technology from a vehicle.

However, this is not the first instance of a smart crib. It is one that they can get into and rock them to sleep.

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. The base of the crib slowly rocks from side to side, simulating the sensation of a moving auto.

Parents can control all the effects of the Max Motor Dreams by using an app on their phone, from the comfort of their own bed.

"While a quick drive in the family auto can work wonders in getting baby off to sleep, the poor old parents still have to be awake and alert at the wheel", says Alejandro López Bravo, a designer at Espada y Santa Cruz, the Spanish creative studio that designed the Max Motor Dreams. "All you have to do is record (on a dedicated mobile application, NDLR) all the traffic conditions of your route", Ford announces.
