Amar G. Bose, the scientist founder of the high-end speaker company that bears his name, announced a plan several years ago to revolutionize the auto suspension system.

Popular Science gave him a Best of What's New award for the innovative design, and although three years have passed since then, and no new car has featured Bose's suspension, the technology is far from grounded to his research labs. Bose, who says he has spent 27 years on the project, and more than $100 million, intends to partner with a car manufacturer within the next year.
