Driving around the block is one of the oldest tricks in the book to get your baby to fall asleep. Now, Ford Motor Company is hoping to make it a little easier on new parents to get their babies to snooze.

On Thursday, Ford announced the development of MAX Motor Dreams. It’s a crib that simulates the motion, engine noise and even street lighting of those nighttime drives – from the comfort of your own home.

After many years of talking to mums and dads, we know that the parents of newborns are often desperate for just one good night’s sleep,” said MAX Motor Dreams designer Alejandro Lopes Bravo in a press release. “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.”

Parents are able to turn on MAX Motor Dreams with a smartphone app. The app allows parents to record the comforting movement, lights, and sounds of a car journey and then it enables the crib to play it all back on demand.

Unfortunately, the MAX Motor Dreams is just a one-off pilot, however, the company said it is considering putting the unique cot into full-scale production after receiving lots of inquiries about it.
