Ford created a special baby cod, which simulates ride in a car

Posted April 7, 2017

Babies are flowers of life. It is such a joy of having a small human being in your hands and every movement of baby makes his parents so proud. However, when night comes and parents want to sleep, it really does suck that toddlers do not fall asleep easily. One of the usual methods is taking them on a soothing ride in the car, but now there is a special Ford cod to simulate that.

Losing sleep at night is one of the worst things about being a new parent. It is hard to adjust to the new life rhythm and rest is very important. Driving around for a couple of hours every night is really not the best option, although, as many parents know, it totally works. Scientists calculated that new parents are doomed to lose approximately 44 days sleep in just the first year of their child’s life. But Ford is finally offering a solution.

This new invention is a simple baby cod, simulating the motion, engine noise, and even the street lighting of those night‑time drives trying make the baby nod off. This device, called Max Motor Dreams, connects to its users via a smartphone app, which allows parents to record and then reproduce the comforting movement, lights and sounds of a particular journey. So those frustrating nights when parents are desperately trying to get some good sleep are coming to an end.

Babies fall asleep in a car easier, because of its constant movement and soothing environment. All of that had to be represented in this innovative baby cod as well. Max Motor Dreams designer Alejandro López Bravo said: “After many years of talking to mums and dads, we know that parents of newborns are often desperate for just one good night’s sleep. But while a quick drive in the family car can work wonders in getting baby off to sleep, the poor old parents still have to be awake and alert at the wheel”.

So it really is not such a bizarre product for Ford. Having sleepy drivers in your cars is really bad publicity, so preventing them from driving in order to make their baby sleep is a good idea. At first Max Motor Dreams was built just to showcase the idea, but if the interest in this cod increases Ford may seek to put it into a mass production.
