After releasing the Edge SUV, Ford decided to take the noise-cancelling technology and apply it to pets.

Made out of high-density cork to absorb outside noise, the kennel is also equipped with two microphones: one that detects sounds such as fireworks while the other sends out converse frequencies to cancel out the chaos outside. The result? A calm, stress-free haven for dogs that also looks cool.

The kennel is the first product of Ford's “Interventions” series where technologies and processes used in the car industry are used to solve everyday problems.   

It has yet to be released to market and is still in the prototype stages. Let's hope it's released by the Fourth of July!
