    That is cool. Since I don't drive cars though it would be nice to see if it worked for a truck. Even if not it would be nice for cars that way the idiots that park beside me wouldn't ding up my truck opening their freakin' doors into it.

      Way cool. But I can't find any specific info on their site if they do conversions and what it costs. Their site seems to be just a presentation of the concept with hopes the major automakers incorporate it into future vehicles.

      There is also "no free lunch". Maintaining the same road clearance means the interior floor pan is raised, reducing leg- and/or headroom. They ideally have to be incorporated into the car's original design.

        I agree - something isn't adding up here.

          ... and how easy is it to repair when it malfunctions?

          ... and how does it do in a T-bone crash?

          ... and will it work with a dead battery?
