Ford has designed a baby crib which is essentially a “smart bed” for babies that can simulate the feel of riding in a car — a well-known trick for parents with little ones that have difficulty falling asleep. It uses sound, lighting, and motion to mimic the feel of a gentle car ride from the backseat.
The crib comes from a Ford design team in Spain, and you’ll be disappointed to learn that there’s only one in existence so far. The tiny bed is outfitted with LEDs that glow in a hue similar to passing street lights, while a speaker on the bottom produces ambient noise in the form of muffled engine sounds. It also gently vibrates to provide the sense of movement and motion that’s felt during car rides.
