You bet its an interesting read. Especially when you think about how the original idea dates back to the 18th century.
No prizes for guessing which car this system will launch in.

the claims they make seem a bit unrealistic(50% reduction in braking distance), it would be great if they achieve this, but it is limited by traction.
i'm thinking this might go the way of sensotronic brakes(in the minds of enthusiasts atleast.)
