    That actually is pretty spiffy. A bit too complicated for my tastes, but very clever and well done.

    Kinda looks neat, but would you "really" spend all that dough just to make your car look neat? I'd rather have a spiffy new bike (or two).

    I would hope there is an emergency crank down somewhere. Colds winter morning, 4 year old battery, that could screw up your day big time.

    That would be an excellent door for people with mobility problems who have trouble
    getting around doors when exiting.

    We would get "drivered" instead. It's less painful.

    Most of the drivers around here would act like air bags...sort of...maybe lard bags to cushion the fall.

    Its a cool concept... too much mechanical stuff to go wrong. Most car makers can't even make window motors or car lock actuators that last more than a couple years, much less a door that has to open and close precisely tens of thousands of times over the car's lifetime.

    Maybe if I had a new Maybach (fat chance), it would go with it.
