First there was the Happiest Baby x Yves Behar SNOO crib, which claims to soothe your baby to sleep for you, and now Ford’s Spanish division has created a bassinet that mimics the lulling wonders of a car ride. Yep, that’s right. Robotic cribs are probably going to become a thing.

According to Ford’s site, the new MAX Motor Dreams baby crib features a “restrained engine noise” machine, gentle movements imitating a car journey, and LED lights that simulate streetlights.

In order to sync your baby’s car-nap preference, there’s an app that tracks the sights, sounds, and movements in your actual car that can then be “reproduced” for the crib.

Take a look at the invention in action via the video below.

There is reportedly only one prototype of the MAX Motor Dreams crib, but if demand is high enough, they’ll consider putting it into production. Interested? You can add your name to the list here.
