honda sound sitter soft toy aims to soothe your baby with engine noises

fed up with your baby crying in the home or on the go? typically, a soft toy might be your number one go-to solution and so, honda is here to help. the honda sound sitter – a cushioned car-shaped speaker that produces an engine sound with a calming effect – has been created to help such families with small children. although experimental, this is just one method the japanese auto-manufacturer are using to support mobility experiences.

we are made up of nearly 70% moisture so our bodies, especially at a cellular level, are very susceptible to sound. by stuffing speakers inside a soft car, your child’s toy can provide soothing noises at the control of remote buttons – perfect for the parents. the calming sounds from various cars can be recorded in order for adults to find the most suitable frequencies but, so far, the honda NSX is proving to have the most success.
