Bose Suspension

By using powerful electromagnetic struts, the Bose car suspension system could instantly extend or retract any one wheel, with all four corners working in concert to keep the vehicle's body level. The system was installed on a Lexus LS400 outside its headquarters in Framingham, Massachusetts, and a driver sped the car over several obstacles while the body remained completely level. Where can you find this technology today? Unfortunately, only in big-rig truck seats, where the Bose Ride mounting system actively nulls shock and vibration before it hits the driver.

Dot Braille Smartwatch


Introducing DOT, the world's first braille smartwatch, and it's not just a concept. Rather than a conventional display, this one uses raised bumps to show braille text.
