Bose Suspension?

Check out Bose's electromagnetic suspension: http://www.bose.com/controller?event...lenge.jsp&ck=0

I wonder how long before they try this with motorcycles?

Corvette has been using this since the early 90's

Amazing stuff, I wonder how much weight it adds.

I could be wrong, but I don't think any regular production automobile has had linear electromagnetic motors for a suspension system. Looks neat but expensive. I would expect it to debut on a top level luxury car before anything else (Mercedes S class, Rolls Royce, Bentley, BMW 7, Lexus LS460, etc)

Corvette and some Cadillacs got magnetorheological shocks for 2003, but I am nearly certain they have never had what Bose is showing. Some cars have had hydraulic suspensions (original Mini, some Citroens). Some sports cars I think get adjustable valving or orifices for their "sport" and "comfort" settings. But I have never seen electric motors on a normal car's suspension.
