Many parents have noticed how an evening car ride will lull a fussy baby to sleep. Automaker Ford has designed a crib that mimics that experience, in the safety of a family’s home.

The Max Motor Dreams crib was conceived as part of an ad campaign for Ford’s Max line of cars, according to CNN. The crib simulates a car ride’s gentle rocking movement, emits white noise that sounds like a car engine and is lined with lights that turn on and off, which mimic streetlights during a nighttime ride.


The Max Motor Dreams crib was designed in Spain and is a single pilot project at the moment, Ford said in a press release. However, due to the overwhelming interest, Ford is considering a full-scale production.
