Clever suspenders

Active suspension suspension has been around for a while, Colin Chapman was an early advocate, a man never afraid of trying a new technology to get his race cars faster. Lotus never got the system working on their roadcars but as with so many things these days contemporary computing power makes it possible.

So far, so worthy but dull. The following clip demonstrates the advantages of active suspension in a typically dry fashion but wait for it... it ends with a party trick that will have every red blooded man saying "Man, I gotta have me one of those, that is super cool"

If you haven't figured it out yet, I'm highly stupid and naive.

Was that for real??

And is the same 'No Highs, No Lows, must be Bose' speaker company? Because it looks like the same insignia.

That being said, man, I gotta have me one of those, that is super cool.

It's for real. Yep it's that Bose they're taking over our cars ever so slowly, it starts with the speakers you know.

I'd not heard the strapline 'No Highs, No Lows, must be Bose' before. Do they make anti-psychotic mood stabilising drugs too?

And yes once you've seen it you need it in your ride.

More investigation proves that Bose and Dows Chemical will be taking over the world. They've got their sticky fingers in everything.

My husband is an audiophile. Bose is like, the most overrated peice of crap speaker company ever. Hence the tagline. Their speakers do nothing for sound staging.

Here's a question: if this suspension is so great (I'm being a nit-picker), how come so few cars have it as an option?
