Bose's suspension system is almost magical

By Faiming_low on 10 Feb 2016

Attached Image According to CNET, Bose had worked on a suspension system for 24 years which is so revolutionary that it is almost magical. Named Project Sound, the electromagnetic suspension system was so advanced that it could detect upcoming bumps in the road and keep the car completely level when driving over them. If implemented on any car, body roll would also be totally eliminated, keeping the car parallel to the road at all times.

Sadly, the technology did not make it any production vehicle as it was deemed too expensive and heavy. Manufacturers which did expressed interested included Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Jaguar and Ferrari.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

A suspension with no feedback from the road, is it safe?

Completely level? I would love to test this over SAF camp humps.

The last part where the car leaped over the wooden beam...notice the red strips on each end? What does it tell you?

It's still a very much controlled environment where they do the test. Why not do a real world road test?

Even when the driver car roll over someone.....he won't know that he is about to killl someone. No feedback from the road is dangerous.
