Ford is not just about cars nowadays, they seem to come up with just about everything. Only recently they have commissioned a new invention that might be all the craze with the parents in the near future - the Max Motor Dreams.
New parents who are in the lookout to purchase the best baby crib for their newborns, don't be bewildered if you ever chance on a baby rocker with Ford's brand etched on it. Believe us, this is not a late April Fool's prank. Ford, the American automaker that has a large following with their commercial and luxury vehicles, is recently targeting a new market- parents with infants.
You heard it right, Ford has a game plan in ensuring your tyke will get the much needed sleep he/she gets. Officially labelled as "Max Motor Dreams", the contraption is equipped with built in speakers that mimic a muffled engine sound and road noise, LED lighting that stimulates the warmth glow of passing street lights, and motion enabled mattress that gently moves side to side and Ford made sure to entirely imitate the feeling of sleeping at the back of the car, sans the usage of car fuel.
The smart bed for babies was made possible with the help of Spanish design studio, Espada y Santa cruz, with crib designed by Alejandro Lopez Bravo in joint collaboration with the American automaker powerhouse. This device has a smart phone app that allows both parents to track and at the same time record their vehicle's sound and movement from their chosen route.
The gathered data then can be directly sent to the system of Max Motor Dreams Crib, and in turn give the sleeping bundle of joy the road cruise experience that they are familiar with. But to be clear, the app doesn't include in the recording the harsh road sounds along the way as it can surely backfire on the main mission of the Max Motor Dreams Crib.
For the parents who are wanting to get their hands on the Max Motor Dreams, you will have to be patient this time. Roadshow announced that the car automaker has only made one crib, as it seems Ford is still testing the waters of its new venture. But if the demand for the crib will increase, then Ford might consider mass production of these smart cribs.
There's still no official announcement coming from Ford in what countries that Max Motor Dreams will be sold and its price tag. Comprehending the state of the art technology that is utilized in this concept and considering the Ford's brand involved, the expected cost of the smart crib will not be cheap. But for now, we only hope that the infant that will be using the crib doesn’t suffer from carsickness.
