BEACON TRANSCRIPT – You might have noticed that your child falls asleep more easily during car rides. However, you probably cannot afford taking him on a ride every time when he needs to sleep. Therefore, Ford came up with an idea which might save you a lot of time. They released a concept crib which puts your child more easily to sleep.
Marketing strategy turns into a parenting solution
Max Motor Dreams is the miraculous crib which rocks your children to sleep. Actually, they released the device as a marketing strategy targeted to families. Through this initiative, they hope to convince more Europeans to buy their new vehicle, Ford Max. However, the crib might be a good idea, and work as an effective and easy way for parents to put their babies to sleep.
The crib has a pretty appearance, with white lining and a bit of wood which would make it blend in perfectly in a modern home. But not the outside of the crib is of interest for desperate parents. On the inside, the crib has an advanced technology which recreate a car ride.
The speakers put on the bottom of the little mattress create the sound of an engine. Also, the mattress moves as if the child would actually be on a car, and the LEDs on the edge would recreate the lights which enter the car windows while driving through a city in the evening.
Using car data to program the crib
You do not have to worry that something might go out of control. The crib is controlled with the help of an app on your smartphone. Thus, after the baby has fallen asleep, you can transform it into a regular crib. Ford explained how they borrowed the same technology from a car.
They looked at regular parameters registered during a car ride, and then used them when programming the computer of the crib. This is explained in more detail in a video Ford made to present this amazing product.
The bad news is the crib is not available for sale. Those who want it should register for a Ford test drive which takes place in Spain, and then you automatically enter a competition. Also, Ford did not announce how many such cribs they have or if they are planning to put them for sale afterwards.
