As part of its Unlearn campaign, Ford created a full-body “age suit” to replicate the effects of aging. The goal was to see how someone with an elderly person's restricted mobility would interact with Ford car models. Why not get a real old person to do it? Well, Ford may have wanted to observe what improvements could be made without risking injury to the elderly. Or maybe one of the engineers was just a huge fan of the 1988 movie Big.

One Mashable employee was recently given the grand opportunity to try the suit out. In short: he hated it. The suit instantly turned the 30-year-old into a “70-something person.” Watch his unfortunate day-in-a-life with the Ford age suit, below.
