Some babies won’t sleep unless they get a nighttime cruise around the neighborhood, as many parents (my own included) can attest. That’s why Ford’s latest creation isn’t a car at all – it’s a small cot for babies called Max Motor Dreams (via CNET) that simulates a drive using sound and motion, along with LED lighting designed to mimic yellow-hued streetlights.

The sound comes from actual recorded road noise, captured via an app on your phone. The motion? That’s down to small motors under the bed that provide movement so it feels like the crib is in motion – even though it’s not actually moving.
