Some of the tech in cars these days are just jaw dropping. The latest Mercedes-Benz S-Class uses its new Magic Body Control feature that will stabilize the road you drive on. With this you may never feel another bump again.

It will scan the road's surface 50 feet ahead in real time at the speeds of 80mph (128km/h) to analyze the surface condition.
