• MIT launches fuel friendly GenShocks shock absorber

  • GenShock.jpgMIT has introduced something that is going to be loved by economical, speed loving people. The GenShocks is a shock absorber for vehicles that can help increase fuel efficiency up to 10 per cent. It uses an active hydraulic system which forces some fluid through electricity generating turbines as the vehicle goes up and down. This means that the more the bumps you cover, the more fuel efficiency you get. That doesn’t really mean you can go ahead killing your suspension, be aware.

    MIT also has mentioned that the GenShocks can help companies immensely to cut costs especially when it has to do with huge trucks that carry a heavy load. No price or set date has been announced, but they say it should come out by summer this year.
