Dogs have much greater hearing than humans and sounds that do not bother us can give them plenty of time. Firecrackers are especially hard on many puppies and owners who need to calm down their panicking pets. To possibly help them, Ford has developed a noise suppression prototype, which, according to Kenner, was inspired by the noise control introduced in its SUV to mitigate engine and transmission noise.
When microphones in the kennel detect the sound of fireworks, a built-in audio system emits opposite frequencies that Ford claims to significantly reduce or cancel the cacophony. The kennel is also built with high density cork to further dampen outside noise.
The noise-canceling kennel is currently not for sale, but Ford says it's the first in a series of initiatives known as interventions to solve everyday problems. "
You may remember, especially if you have a small child, that Ford developed a cot called Max Motor Dreams last year to calm babies who only fall asleep in moving vehicles. Exhausted parents (with high-mileage cars ) know each other. The cot had small engines underneath that stimulated the driving feel of a moving vehicle, played the actual road noise, and even mimicked built-in LED lighting to mimic the headlamps of street lights.
At that time, Ford said the cot could be put up for sale When there was enough interest, but even though it got viral, Max Motor Dreams never managed to bring it to market. This is not an encouraging sign for people who want to buy a noise control kennel, but in the meantime, you can prepare your dogs for a Christmas fireworks display. There is also a product called ThunderShirt that is designed to relieve dog anxiety but the results vary from dog to dog.
