Riding this car will stop your babies from crying in public

Good news for people who have babies who always cries in public. Although some babies are good in presence of crowd but some is there who feel irritation while in public and start crying.

In a country where public annoyance at crying babies is the norm, some companies in Japan, keep coming up with new ideas to keep them quiet.

Carmaker Honda is the most modern company to have a go at that, inventing a plush toy car called a Sound Sitter that allegedly mimics the sound that babies hear in the womb, which is apparently at a similar frequency to a car engine. Honda tested over 30 different of its car models, and found that the NSX model, launched in the year, 2016, was the most soothing for babies. Honda said that 11 out of 12 babies were soothed by the sound of this car’s engine, which can be activated via a smartphone.

Crying babies are a particular source of awkwardness and concern for many mothers in Japan, who bear the brunt of others’ censure if they are unable to keep their babies quiet in public places. That led a group of women in 2016 to start a grassroots campaign, the “We Love Babies Project,” which encouraged Japanese people to wear stickers bearing the words Naitemo iiyo! (“It’s OK to cry!”) to address the disgrace of babies crying in public places. Even politicians have waded into the debate, with a group of 13 male governors this year coming together to assurance their support for the campaign, which also calls on restaurants and other establishments to declare themselves baby-friendly zones with the sticker.

Another company that has tried to tackle the same crisis is All Nippon Airways, which last year carried out research to figure out how to stop babies from crying during takeoff and landing of flights. The carrier said that its study found that some parents with small children avoided flying out of concerns that their babies would disturb other passengers during the travel.
