Ford Canada no longer just an auto company: CEO

  Ford Canada no longer just an auto company: CEO VANCOUVER - Ride hailing, electric vehicles and self-driving cars are transforming the future of Ford Canada, and CEO Mark Buzzell says the company is gearing up for a radical shift toward becoming an "auto and mobility" business. Buzzell said Tuesday the company sees these trends taking hold and is responding with billions of dollars in new investments. While he wouldn't speculate on long-term hiring plans in Canada, he said Ford would still need a strong manufacturing workforce."At the end of the day, you still have to manufacture autonomous vehicles," he said in an interview at Vancouver's auto show.

Inspired by this notion, Ford has designed a bed that can simulate all those experiences. No pricing information is available either, but Ford España is running a sweepstakes to give away the crib to one lucky winner, as long as they partake in a test drive of the Ford Max.

Inspired by this notion, Ford has designed a bed that can simulate all those experiences. The only problem? It’s made for infant-sized humans.

Called the Max Motor Dreams, the crib contains LED lights that glow similarly to street lights, and has speakers at the bottom that can make muffled engine sounds for ambient noise. Naturally, it gently vibrates and rocks to mimic a ride in the backseat, and even comes with an app designed to track your car’s route so it can reproduce the movements from that drive for your baby.

  Ford designed a smart crib that replicates car rides © Provided by The Verge The Max Motor Dreams appears to be mostly conceptual for now, with only one crib produced so far. No pricing information is available either, but Ford España is running a sweepstakes to give away the crib to one lucky winner, as long as they partake in a test drive of the Ford Max. Even though it’s clearly made for babies, I wouldn’t mind seeing an adult version of this bed — it seems more clever than most smart beds I’ve seen. Of course, as long as it doesn’t get hacked.

Smart bandages will use 5G data to track your health .
Bandages are usually very mysterious -- it's hard to know how well you're healing until you unwrap them, and that usually means a trip to the doctor. If Welsh researchers succeed, however, you'll never have to wonder what's going on underneath all that cloth. Swansea University is planning trials (due within 12 months) of smart, 3D-printed bandages that will use 5G wireless data and nano-sized sensors to constantly relay details about your health. It would help physicians customize treatment based on the progress of your wound, your location and your activity.
