New Atlas brings to attention the Max Motor Dreams, a smart crib that simulates a car ride from engine noise, street lights flashing by, and car-like vibrations so that babies can fall asleep without the need to actually go for a drive. More info here, official site here, albeit it is entirely in Spanish.
The app ensures that baby's experience remains uniform from family car to cradle. Parents record the sound and movement of the actual family car. With this data, the Max Motor Dreams recreates the specific motion and sound, instead of just a generic sound/vibration pattern.
The mattress rocks gently to simulate the subtle, soothing movement of the car ride, while a built-in audio system plays a restrained engine soundtrack to add the right background noise. Soft lighting flows around the sides and ends, imitating the gentle glow of streetlights outside the car window.
