New Product Idea

Imagine you are on a long road trip, going 60 or 70 on the freeway, and your kids (2 years and 6 weeks) have finally fallen asleep. And it is even during their nap time, so they should be rested in a couple of hours. You and your wife can now listen to the CDs of your choice. But then suddenly traffic comes to a stop... And they wake up, not getting enough sleep

I think that this product will solve this problem:


I want to have a button on the dash that, when pressed, samples the road noise and road vibrations for about 30 seconds. One each of the child car seats there would be a tranducer similar to the ButtKicker for home theaters. This would simulate the vibaration from the road when the car slows or stops. Maybe there would have to be small speakers that replay the road noise.

With this product, no matter how fast the car is traveling, kids sitting in the car seat will feel a constant amount of road movement.
