Perfect Suspension System
I'm sure that all of you out there are familiar with the inherant problem with suspension systems. In order to get better handling you have to stiffin up the ride and sacrifice ride quality. I'm sure everyone here has heard of the BOSE company and their sound technology. What I'm sure you didn't know is that Mr. Bose himself has been spending the last 16 years solving the issue of car suspension. He has developed a system with high speed electronic motors on each shock that are wired into a computer that reacts virtually instantaneously in order to move the shocks when it hits a bump or you take a turn going fast. On top of that because the shocks can adjust fast enough bumps in the road might as well not exist. The only trade off is what comes out of your wallet. It won't be consumer ready for four more years, but when it is it will no doubt be rediculously expensive. The point is that in the not that distant future higher end cars will start using something like this, and once the technology becomes used more it will become cheaper and trickle down and become something that could be available to anyone.
My car won't ever be done because I'm insane. That is all.
