Inventive New ‘Vacuum Brake’ Might Be The Future Of Making Cars Stop

Swedish car technology company Autoliv have come up with a brand new braking system for vehicles which sees cars being able to come to a standing stop a full 40% quicker than normal. Even in icy, wet or windy conditions. How do they do it? Well, via an automatically-deployed hi-tech vacuum system. It’s somewhat of a victim of its own success, though. So effective is it, however, that it cannot be used at speeds at over 40mph. Why? Well, the stop is so sudden that it create G force that would mess up your insides! Seriously.

We’re not sure whether this would catch on and what it would do to roads and things, but it’s certainly an interesting premise. See for yourself:
