My Ride: my favorite two feet
interesting concept but if this idea ever went into production it would probably use some sort of shape memory alloy in order to meet stringent crash ratings and would cost beyond ferrari money. SMA's are still in testing phases mostly and have yet to find a logical application, but it beats cloth in this case.
