[The Wisdom of a Distracted Mind] Speaking of Bose...

This is pretty freaking amazing (especially the ending)...

Bose doesn't just make really nice speakers, but apparently, Dr. Bose has also dipped a toe into the rough waters of the automobile suspension market.

Now, before anyone starts getting the idea that this will somehow make speed-bumps obsolete, do keep in mind that this is the suspension at work here and not the tires. Hitting a speed-bump too hard will still do a heap of axle and wheel damage (smoother doesn't always mean you can go faster). And, sadly, we probably won't see this on American cars for at least a decade, and I can imagine those will only be high-end cars at best. Perhaps the biggest impact will be in terms of rollover by, as it seems, greatly increasing the minimum speed where a rollover could occur.

Still, however, keep in mind that you can only bend Newton's Laws, and when you try to break them, things usually don't end very well.
